The Search

The Cannes Film Festival has just a few days left, and there's still some great films left to premiere overseas. One such film marks the reunion of The Artist director Michel Hazanavicius and star Berenice Bejo in The Search, set against the backdrop of the second Cechen War. Annette Bening also stars in the film, and now the first trailer from France has arrived. Thankfully, most of the trailer is in English, though there are some moments in French that don't have English subtitles. But even without that clarification, we still get the vibe that this could be a pretty big Oscar contender that is much different than The Artist from 2011 as it focuses on the war from the point-of-view of children as victims stuck in the middle of the danger. Watch!

Here's the trailer for Michel Hazanavicius' The Search from Warner Bros. France (via The Playlist):

The Search, written and directed by Michel Hazanavicius, is a remake of Fred Zinneman's film of the same name. After his parents are killed in their village, a small boy flees, joining the flood of refugees. He meets Carole, a European Union delegation head and little by little, with her help, he will return to life. At the same time, his elder sister Raïssa searches tirelessly for him amongst the civilian exodus. Then there's 20-year-old Kolia, a recent Russian Army recruit, he will gradually be overwhelmed by the daily life of wartime. The film premieres at the Cannes Film Festival this week, but there's no US release date set yet.

Best if you take in the Batman Superman dog crap and not expose yourself to this reality as it seems to above your pay grade.
