Eldorado against Lorna while Ursula is looking

  • 23.01.2009

We are going to assist to a particular yet pleasant fratricide on February 27th, during the French cinema César award show.
In the category “Best Foreign Film” two films co-produced by Wallimage are facing off against each other. Eldorado by Bouli Lanners on one side, Le Silence de Lorna by the Dardenne brothers on the other. Double score! Of course, there is no guarantee any of these two films will win the award, because this year the stakes were set very high. Thus the more reason to be proud!
Out of all the Wallimage films though, it is Home which takes the lion’s share with three nominations. Ursula Meyer’s parable is on its way to obtain the César for best first film. The other two potential prizes this original work could win are technical rewards: Agnès Godard was nominated for her excellent photography while the original sets, designed by Yvan Niclass (and only slightly touched up by Digital Graphics) received the appraisal of the voters. In this category there is also a spot for Les Enfants de Timpelbach, thanks to Olivier Raoux’s excellent work.
2009 is a year which started in an excellent way for Wallimage. And indeed, the year has only just begun!
