Faire L'Amour

Set to open the 2014 Cannes Film Festival International Critics' Week sidebar, is Faire L’Amour, Haitian director Djinn Carrénard's sophomore effort.

Faire l’amour (or Making Love) is Djinn's follow-up to his first film, Donoma, which was reportedly made for a few hundred dollars; We saw it, and we were enthralled by it! It screened at Cannes 2 years ago, also as part of a sidebar program. He impressed critics and audiences with it, around the world, wherever it screened, including here in the USA, and I expect his second feature, Faire L'Amour, to do the same, starting with a Cannes 2015 premiere. 

The film, budgeted at €2.7 million, or about $3.5 million, is a considerable jump (from a few hundred dollars for his first film, to a few million for his second). Let's see how that affects the end product. 

Carrénard actually wrote Faire L'Amour before he made Donoma, and says that it'll explore similar themes as that first film, which revolved around the dynamics of several, interconnected Paris couples. And also like Donoma, Faire L’Amour's cast comprises of mostly amateur, first-time actors, which Carrénard selected from acting workshops he conducted earlier 3 years ago.

British filmmaker Andrea Arnold is presiding over the jury for the 53rd edition of International Critics' Week. The section runs this year from May 15-23. 

A first poster for the film was unveiled yesterday, and is embedded below (based on the poster, it appears that the title is being shortened to simply FLA). But first, check out a clip from the film, which surfaced this morning:
