Marion Cotillard In For Mal De Pierres

Hot off her acclaimed turn as a Polish woman struggling to survive in America in James Gray’s period drama The Immigrant, French actress Marion Cotillard is set delve right back into another period romance, this time with auteur Nicole Garcia. The film, titled Mal De Pierres, sounds like another potential awards contender for Cotillard.

Set after the close of WWII, Mal De Pierres spans twenty years and focuses on the life of a passionate, free-spirited young woman (Cotillard) who seeks refuge from a loveless marriage in the arms of another man. It’s based on the best-selling novel by Milena Agus, which has been translated into more than 15 languages since its publication in 2007.

Alian Attal will produce the film, which Garcia co-wrote with her usual partner Jacques Fieschi, for independent film company Les Productions du Tresor. In a statement, Attal said:

“It’s a passion project for both Nicole and us.

Richard Robbins obituary

Composer who scored nearly every Merchant Ivory film from The Europeans onwards and was an integral part of the brand

The Guinness Book of Records notes that the 44-year collaboration between the Indian producer Ismail Merchant and the American director James Ivory was the longest in the history of cinema. They might equally have added the screenwriter Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, who joined the duo from the start. And a member of Merchant Ivory Productions for almost as long was the composer Richard Robbins, who has died after suffering from Parkinson's disease, aged 71.

The Ivory-Robbins working partnership, which lasted over three decades, outdid in longevity such celebrated director-composer unions as Federico Fellini-Nino Rota, Michelangelo Antonioni-Giovanni Fusco and Alfred Hitchcock-Bernard Herrmann. Robbins scored nearly every Merchant Ivory production from The Europeans (1979) onwards, and was an integral part of the film company's brand.

Jacques Tati and French film comedy

Jacques Tati was a master of burlesque. Emilie Bickerton on a French revolutionary

If you told Jacques Tati that his flight was delayed, he'd say terrific – and settle down to watch what he considered "the best movie of the year": people passing by. Observation gave the director all the material he needed for the four films he made over three decades. Tati liked to call himself "the Don Quixote of cinema", which captures his combination of idealism, imagination and generosity. Monsieur Hulot, his charming, self-effacing but out-of-synch comic creation, is the character with whom he is most often, and fondly, associated. But Tati's work cannot be reduced to the man with the too-short trousers. His films – from the early burlesque of Jour de fête in 1949 to the highly stylised modernism of Play Time in 1967 – might not have an intellectual message, but they are delightful witnesses to the second half
