Lost Illusions, Annette and Aline are full of nominations for the César 2022, disappointment for Titane

Balzac’s adaptation by Xavier Giannoli garners 15 nominations. Golden Palm Titanium however, was not selected for the best film category.

2021 has been a great year for French cinema. The seventh art shone at the Cannes Film Festival and at the Venice Film Festival. Yet neither the palme d’or Titanium, nor the Golden Lion The Event have not filled up with Cesar nominations, announced on Wednesday. Julia Ducournau’s unclassifiable film, already shunned by the Oscars, only received four citations and was not retained in the queen category of best film. Same small total for The Event by Audrey Diwan, the story of a clandestine abortion in the 1960s. However, the feminist drama, awarded at the Mostra, is in the running for the César for best film. The incandescent revelations of Titanium and of The Eventare doing better: Agathe Rousselle and Anamaria Vartolomei will be hard to decide between in the best hope section.

The members of the Academy, on the other hand, acclaimed The Lost Illusions by Xavier Gianolli. Balzac’s adaptation won 15 nominations, the 2022 vintage record and took over the supporting roles categories. Jeanne Balibar and Cécile de France for women. Xavier Dolan and Vincent Lacoste for men. Giannoli Benjamin Voisin’s Rubempré slips into the best male hopeful category.

The Academy also embraced the musical films of the year. Annette, Carax’s rock opera, achieved 11 nominations and offered Best Actor contender Adam Driver the chance to become the second American actor after Kristen Stewart to walk away with a squeeze. On the other hand, the performance of his partner Marion Cotillard fell by the wayside. Aline, Valérie Lemercier’s tribute to the career of Céline Dion, won ten selections. For his love letter to the interpreter of For you to love me againValérie Lemercier could combine the statuette for best actress, best screenplay and best director.

The directors on the front lines

The flagship category of the César for best film will be decided between these top three films, The Eventpolar BAC north, the nugget of Cannes Onoda 10,000 days in the jungle and the social pamphlet The divide. Verdict, February 25 at the Olympia.

The best achievement section gives a massive place to women. Faced with Xavier Giannoli, Cédric Jimenez, Leos Carax and the young Arthur Harari, we have almost reached parity. In addition to Valérie Lemercier, there are Julia Ducournau and Audrey Diwan. One of them could become the second director in the history of the Césars to be awarded after Tonie Marshall.

The films competing in these major César categories are the favorites. Bac Nord, a great public and critical success on the crooked cops of Marseille, amassed 7 nominations, followed by La fracture with 6. Thriller which also filled the rooms, Black box with five quotes could give Pierre Niney his second title for best actor . The good behavior ofOnoda 10,000 days, four quotations, surprised the exegetes.

The Cannes selection does not convince

The film, which tells how a Japanese soldier continued to hide in the Philippines, unaware that World War II was over, was released in theaters this summer and failed to find its audience. But he was full of nominations for the Lumière prizes awarded by the foreign press based in Paris. Arthur Harari’s happiness is perhaps Jacques Audiard’s misfortune. Her beautiful black and white Parisian marivaudage on love in the Tinder era The Olympiads only gets five citations. Its actors are recognized in the revelations sections but nothing for the maestro à la dozen de César in the best film, directing or adaptation categories.

Also small harvest, purely in the technical sections, for the great historical-romantic fresco eiffel by Martin Bourboulon. Its headliners Romain Duris and Emma Mackey are ignored. Objects of controversy at Cannes, the controversial France by Bruno Dumont and Benedetta by Paul Verhoeven did not leave an impression on the minds of the 4,363 professionals entitled to vote. These contenders for the Palme d’Or barely escape oblivion thanks to their stars: Lea Seydoux and Virginie Efira.

Addressing the theme of euthanasia and also in competition at Cannes, Everything went well by François Ozon confirms the “I love you neither” between the filmmaker and the Académie des César. And grabs no nomination not even for Sophie Marceau or André Dussolier, yet phenomenal. Catherine Deneuve, mother who is about to see her son taken away by the disease in In his lifetime, is also ignored.
