A teaser for Notre Jour Viendra, Romain Gavras’ debut film, hit the web a couple days ago.
I’m a big fan of Cassel’s and this seemed to come out of left field, either because I was just ignorant to it or that was the intentions. If anyone doesn’t know, the Gavras in Romain’s name is indeed connected to his father, legendary directory Costa Gavras. Romain’s shown some great directing chops with music videos, particularly Justice’s “Stress” and MIA’s (although I can’t claim to be a fan of her) “Born Free.” The teaser is edited nice and simple with startling results, no? The siren, the boobs, cars, flares… etc. But seriously, this looks tasty, anyone else agree?
Interesting sidenote, “Our Day Will Come” is graffiti’d on the wall in his video for MIA’s “Born Free.”
Really looking forward to this one too! I hope its out soon!
watch it on vimeo
I included the vimeo link in the first post.
interesting sidenote, “tiocfaidh ar la” (our day will come) is an Irish republican slogan. I imagine Notre Jour Viendra is about independantists in Brittany?
I just saw the trailer for this film yesterday. It looks so good… I can’t wait.
The film will release september 15, I really hope Elephant Eye picks this one up too would love to see it before the year’s end here in Chicago
