Only three films into her career, Mia Hansen-Løve has established herself as one of the more exciting names in world cinema. Her debut, "Tout est pardonné," was named the Best First Film at the César awards when she was only 27, and her next, the excellent "The Father Of My Children," put her on the world stage, something firmed up by her most recent picture, the touching, beautiful "Goodbye, First Love." And with husband Olivier Assayas, she makes up one half of a helluva talented filmmaker marriage.

Mia Hansen-Love

Only three films into her career, Mia Hansen-Løve has established herself as one of the more exciting names in world cinema. Her debut, "Tout est pardonné," was named the Best First Film at the César awards when she was only 27, and her next, the excellent "The Father Of My Children," put her on the world stage, something firmed up by her most recent picture, the touching, beautiful "Goodbye, First Love." And with husband Olivier Assayas, she makes up one half of a helluva talented filmmaker marriage.

With "Goodbye, First Love" now rollling out around the world, the director's starting to reveal what her next project might be, and it sounds pretty exciting. In an interview with The Observer, Hansen-Løve tells Jason Solomons that her next film will be an epic romance set against the backdrop of the French music scene of the 1990s, which spawned artists like Daft Punk and Mr. Oizo.

"It's a massive project," she told the paper,  "sort of a two-part movie called 'Eden.' My brother was quite a successful DJ in the 1990s, Sven Løve. He was part of a group who did residencies at the Queen club in Paris and out of that came Daft Punk and that whole French house movement. It was a huge chunk of my life." That said, there's a few hurdles to overcome first. "The music rights alone are costing half a million euros, and I need lots of crowd scenes and to hire big nightclubs, so it's getting very expensive."

The film may not be known as "Eden" by the time it comes abroad, however, with the director saying that "I might not call it 'Eden' in English. You see, I'm already thinking of the English title. It might be 'Lost in Music,' after the Sister Sledge song" (or indeed, the Larry Levan house remix of the song). There's no timeframe or casting on the project yet, but given the humanism and filmmaking nous she's shown so far, this is going to be something we'll keep a very keen eye on.
