The European Film Market at the 62nd Berlinale was buzzing for Franco-American production The We and the I by Michel Gondry, pre-sold by the Parisian company Kinology. The new film by the director of Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind was filmed last year in New York in the Bronx, and follows high school students on the bus home on the last day of the school year. The film is a sort of study of group dynamics and the evolution of relationships as the bus gradually becomes emptier, and has been acquired in Berlin for several small territories, according to Grégoire Melin, who will unveil footage from the film a few weeks before Cannes, where he will also be counting on Cosmopolis by David Cronenberg, already pre-sold practically everywhere in the world.
Does this mean that we could see a CannesRobsten this year? I hope so!!
Kristen’s film, On The Road, is set to premiere at Cannes on May 23.
