At Eternity’s Gate

At Eternity’s Gate

The festival will present 10 new films by world-famous directors once again this year. France is the best-represented country in the Masters section with four films, though three are English-language works. Claire Denis has made her first English film in High Life (Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche), while Jacques Audiard has done likewise with The Sisters Brothers (Joaquin Phoenix, John C. Reilly, Jake Gyllenhaal). By contrast, US director Julian Schnabel went to France to shoot At Eternity’s Gate, starring Willem Dafoe as Vincent van Gogh. The only director who stayed loyal to his country and language in this section was Olivier Assayas, with the typical French conversational comedy Non-Fiction.
