‘Lean On Pete’ wins at Les Arcs
    2017-December-25  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

ANDREW HAIGH’S “Lean on Pete” won the top prize, the Crystal Arrow, as well as best actor (Charlie Plummer), cinematography (Magnus Nordenhof Jonck) and original score (James Edward Barker) at the ninth edition of Les Arcs European Film Festival.

Starring Travis Fimmel, Steve Buscemi and Chloe Sevigny, “Lean On Pete” premiered at Venice Film Festival where it earned Plummer a best actor nod. The film follows a teenager who gets a summer job working for a horse trainer and befriends a fading racehorse.

Susanna Nicchiarelli’s “Nico, 1988,” winner of Venice Film Festival’s Horizons Award for best film, won the Grand Jury Prize. The film stars Trine Dyrholm (“Love Is All You Need”) as Nico, the Andy Warhol muse and Velvet Underground vocalist, in her final years.

The actress prize went to Maria-Victoria Dragus for her performance in Barbara Albert’s “Mademoiselle Paradis,” which premiered at Toronto in the competitive Platform section and went on to play at San Sebastian. The movie scored 10 nominations at the Austrian Film Awards.

“Mademoiselle Paradis” tells the tale of a blind pianist living in 18th-century Vienna who forms a bond with the physician who is trying to restore her sight.

Iram Haq’s “What Will People Say,” the Norwegian-Pakistani helmer’s follow-up to feature debut “I Am Yours,” scooped the Public’s Choice Award. The movie, inspired by Haq’s own life, centers around a first-generation Norwegian teen who clashes with the traditional values and expectations of her Pakistani immigrant parents.

“What Will People Say” premiered at Toronto in the Platform section and won the Audience Prize at the AFI Fest.

At Les Arcs, the film also earned a special mention from the Young Jury. Haq who attended the French Alps-set festival, also received the Sisley Prize which is given every year to a young and talented woman filmmaker.

Robert Schwentke’s “The Captain” won both the Young Jury Award and a special mention from the Press Jury. Boris Khlebnikov’s “Arrhythmia” won the main Press Award.

The festival, whose film selection is spearheaded by artistic director Frederic Boyer, attracted a record number of participants and a flurry of talents. Les Arcs European Film Festival ran Dec. 16 to 23.(SD-Agencies)
