Today the poster was released and the following is the commentary for the poster selection.
For its 52nd edition, La Semaine de la Critique continues its series of portraits initiated last year with the collaboration of Les Bons Faiseurs agency. Following on from Anamaria Vartolomei's classic pale beauty, the beautifully lit face of Soko stands out against the logo of the Selection that revealed her in the superb Augustine, Alice Winocour's debut film.
By discovering first features, the section in charge of talent scouting also showcases new actors, often performing their first roles on the big screen. Maggie Cheung, Viggo Mortensen, Léa Seydoux, Gael García Bernal, Alice de Lencquesaing, all these actors whose early and promising years are reflected in Soko's luminescent and serene beauty, which radiates the pleasure and sensuality of performance.
The Selection of the 52nd edition and a commentary by Charles Tesson, Artistic Director, will be posted online on April 22nd.
Interesting is to notice that the three Cannes 2013 posters are really movie related in direct or indirect ways. That's great!
