Producers Crowdsourcing Funding To Help Finish The Film



Yep, believe it or not, Brit rocker bad boy Pete Doherty is taking his rugged charm to the big screen and he will have Charlotte Gainsbourg at his side to steer him in the right direction. First announced late last year, "The Confession Of A Child Of The Century" will find the pair firmly in period pic costuming and Cinema Teaser has some first look pictures as well as a behind the scenes video from the film's production.

Based on the autobiographical tale by Alfred de Musset, the film tells the story of his affair with George Sand (the pseudonym of Baroness Amandine Aurore Lucile Dupin). Doherty takes the lead of Octavian, who narrates the story, while Gainsbourg takes the role of Brigitte, a young widow with whom he also has a dalliance. The film will be directed by Sylvie Verheyde, a name not so well known on this side of the pond, but who directed the bittersweet coming-of-age tale “Stella” (see our review) which made festival rounds a couple of years ago. So it all sounds aces right? Well it looks like the film has hit a bit of financial trouble.

Producers for the film are currently seeking 25 to 60 000 Euros to complete its production budget. So if you've ever wanted to become a co-producer on a film starring Pete Doherty and Charlotte Gainsbourg now's the time; you can hit their funding page to pitch in whatever spare change you got. So, obviously, there's not word yet on if/when this will be done but we would imagine with the names currently attached, someone will help the film cross the finish line. You can check out the official synopsis, more stills and the video below.

The Napoleonic Wars are over. Octave is young and beautiful and loves his mistress Elise - until he witnesses her being unfaithful. Despair leads to decadence. Influenced by his friend Desgenais, Octave becomes the perfect libertine, although this new life fails to satisfy his thirst for the absolute. The death of his father takes Octave to the countryside where he meets Brigitte, a young widow who spends most of her days caring for the needy and the poor. He has found a new love. At first, Brigitte tries to resist, unwilling to relive the tortures of passion. Eventually she gives in. They are in love, but Octave is quickly overcome by suspicion. Will Brigitte remain true to him? Doesn’t every woman betray her lover sooner or later? Isn’t Desgenais right when he claims that love doesn’t exist? In a world where no one any longer believes in anything, can Octave find in his love for Brigitte the strength to believe in the future?
