Though he’s been working steadily since the mid-70’s, director Benoit Jacquot’s films tend not to get much attention in the Us, even his growing handful of Isabelle Huppert starring titles (The School of Flesh; Keep It Quiet; False Servant; Villa Amalia) don’t get theatrical or DVD releases here. But the 2012 critical success of his 2012 film, Farewell My Queen seems to have snagged him some more international attention. While Lea Seydoux was originally slated to return for this latest film (scheduling conflicts have caused her to be replaced by Mastroianni), the presence of Deneuve and Gainsbourg should make this an undoubted item of interest.
