9th Wallimage/Bruxellimage session - Not just Mirages...

  • 19.10.2011

La Sieste sous le Figuier is a co-production of Tarantula. A dramatic comedy filmed between Brussels and Luxembourg by the Belgian Anne-Marie Etienne with magnificent Franco-Belgian actors: Jonathan Zaccaï and Marie Kremer facing Anne Consigny and Gisèle Casadesus.

Brussels is also at the heart ofAtomium, a love affair in a Europe that’s a little crazy… The project was brought to us by Eyeworks, which is co-producing this Dutch film by Norbert Ter Hall, based on a novel by Belgian Oscar Van den Boogaard.

Brasserie Romantiek is also a Dutch-language dossier, a delightful collective psychodrama that plays out on a Valentine’s evening in a brasserie. Romantic, then. Artemis has teamed up with A Private View to co-produce the first feature film by the very talented Joel Vanhoebrouck. The casting of this bittersweet comedy Bacri-Jaoui style will be exceptional: all the Flemish stars want to be in it.

Further south, they are The Landes which will host another royal set: under the direction of François Xavier Vives who launches here in his first feature, Miou-Miou, Sergi Lopez, the director-actor Xavier Beauvois(Des Hommes et des Dieux) and a Belgian actress associated here, for the very first time (incredible, but true) with Wallimage: Marie Gillain In Belgium, Landes is co-produced by an old acquaintance: Alain Berliner has fallen for this very ambitious project.

The last file selected is a two-part documentary for television. With Mirages, Patric Jean(La Domination Masculine) proposes to denounce some alleged mystifications of history that are still alive today. These two films are only part of a more global postulate that Wallimage also supports through its Cross Media line. (More info HERE ).

With these five new files, Wallimage/Bruxellimage confirms its alternative positioning: projects with tighter budgets, collaborations with the north of Belgium that often prove to be fruitful (in addition to being a shock film, Rundskop is a great financial success) and a showcase of our regions: here, Brussels is particularly honored…
