Ismael's Ghosts Trailer

"C'est moi!" Another teaser for the Cannes Film Festival! Kicking off the 70th edition of the festival this May is this film, Ismael's Ghost (or Les fantômes d'Ismaël), from French director Arnaud Desplechin (of My Golden Days). The film stars Mathieu Amalric as a filmmaker named Ismael, who is just about to begin shooting his next feature. However, his long lost former lover suddenly shows up out of nowhere, freaking him out, sending him into a mental "tailspin". Marion Cotillard plays his former lover, and Charlotte Gainsbourg plays his current lover, who also freaks out. The rest of the cast includes Louis Garrel, Alba Rohrwacher, Hippolyte Girardot, & Samir Guesmi. This looks really good, I'm very curious about it.

Here's the first trailer for Arnaud Desplechin's Ismael's Ghost, from DailyMotion (via The Playlist):

Ismael's Ghosts

Ismaël Vuillard makes films. He is in the middle of one about Ivan, an atypical diplomat inspired by his brother. Along with Bloom, his master and father-in-law, Ismaël still mourns the death of Carlotta, twenty years earlier. Yet he has started his life over again with Sylvia. Sylvia is his light. Then Carlotta returns from the dead. Sylvia runs away. Ismaël rejects Carlotta. Driven mad by these ordeals, he abandons the shoot for his family home in Roubaix. There, he lives as a recluse, besieged by his ghosts. Ismael's Ghost is directed by French filmmaker Arnaud Desplechin, of the films Esther Kahn, The Beloved, A Christmas Tale, Jimmy P., and My Golden Days previously. The script is by Arnaud Desplechin, Léa Mysius, and Julie Peyr. This will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival coming up. No US release date has been set. Thoughts?

scared off by the hot chick?

If you find Charlotte Gainsbourg hot, then you have a serious issue with your sexuality...

Marion Cotillard genius...but I guess your gayness overlooked her

BigJohnson on Apr 20, 2017


Marion...Yeah. Well, I'm not into her (literally and figuratively. But I'm happy you fantasize on her. Reminds me of a friend who lost her teeth but is still capable of drooling on a beefsteak when he sees one. Nothing personal of course.

Hey Bo. I was paying him with his own coin. ;D As for Cotillard, she's definitely talented, although not the kind of women that can make me loose my restraint. I prefer women with baby faces. ;D I think it's written somewhere in our genes which kind of women we are attracted to, for some genetic reason that our reason ignores... I like Matthieu Almaric. He's the French Gary Oldman.

Looks decent. Who would blame Matty if he returned to Marion.

Charlotte Gainsbourg is an interesting and quite unusual actress, but I like her. Marilon Cotillard works without saying but what I really like seeing here is Mathieu Amalric. He had some interesting roles in past and I am looking forward to see it, definitely ...
