César 2022: Lost Illusions and Annette dominate, BAC Nord big loser

Given favorites, “Lost Illusions” by Xavier Giannoli and “Annette” by Leos Carax stand out as the big winners of this 47th ceremony.

Gaumont

Announced grandissime favorite of these 47th César, Lost Illusions has therefore come, seen, conquered. The results are up to expectations. 7 Césars, including Best Film, Best Adaptation, Best Supporting Actor (Vincent Lacoste) and Best Male Newcomer (Benjamin Voisin).

The only shadow to this idyllic picture remains the absence of Xavier Giannoli. But his interpreters and collaborators were able to speak of him with so much emotion, respect and relevance that one could swear to have glimpsed the director in the hall of the Olympia.

The spark Sparks

If it outclasses the competition, Lost Illusions does not crush it. Thus Annette leaves with 5 awards, Best Direction for Leos Carax, 3 Technical Caesars and a trophy for the Sparks and their particularly inspired soundtrack. The duo also played the title that opens the film on the Olympia stage, to the delight of Antoine de Caunes, a fan of the group for decades.

Survivors and Losers

Of the Balzacian and Caraxian waves, there are only a few survivors, in the forefront of which Benoît Magimel, dancing with joy, receiving his César for Best Actor for his performance in In his lifetime. The same joy that animated Valérie Lemercier (Best Actress) and Anamaria Vartolomei (Best Female Newcomer for her incandescent role in The Event).

For the losers, the evening is bitter. BAC Nord, Boîte Noire and Titane left without the slightest reward. Cruel disappointment for Julia Ducournau and her team. You have to go back to La Vie d’Adèle to find such treatment reserved for a Palme d’Or.

Bet won!

It is easy to imagine the sleepless nights that Antoine de Caunes and his authors had to endure to show themselves up to the task that fell to them, that of resuscitating a ceremony that had fallen very low. And… the bet is a winner! Rarely have we known Caesars so light, friendly, relaxed and human. This spirit of benevolence has inundated all the presenters and laureates, who have never ceased to celebrate the strength of the collective, paying tribute to the film crews with whom they have gone through the months, even the years, necessary for the gestation of ‘a movie.

And surprise, oh surprise, even the funny interludes were… funny! Thus we forgive the few lengths and the delay taken by an Antoine de Caunes happy to find a playground that he had left for too long.

Dedicated to Gaspard Ulliel

Obviously there was the tribute to Jean-Paul Belmondo, the ovations to Danièle Thompson and Cate Blanchett. But there were above all the strong and heartbreaking words of Xavier Dolan intended for his friend Gaspard Ulliel, to whom these César 2022 were dedicated. Her emotion, palpable, won over the assembly, and the soon cloudy eyes of Léa Seydoux.
