Film d’animation on a remix of Cannes musical theme "Le Carnaval des animaux" by Camille Saint-Saëns, with an arrangement conceived by two swedish musicians, Patrik Andersson and Andreas Söderström.
For the poster of its 54th edition, La Semaine de la Critique found inspiration in a still from Breathe, second feature film directed by Mélanie Laurent and part of last year’s selection. Lively, bold, freed of all constraint, the heroine played by the actress Lou de Laâge, embodies the breath of fresh air carried by emerging talents. The poster was designed by the Parisian agency “Les bons faiseurs“ from a photograph by Jérôme Plon.
