Hervé Lasgouttes’ “Crawl” has won the Europa Cinemas Label as Best European Film in the Venice Days section of the Venice Film Festival. By receiving the Label, “Crawl” gains promo support and better exhibition options from the Europa Cinemas network.
Other winners of the Label include Marco Tullio Giordana’s “Piazza Fontana” (which played at Karlovy Vary and last weekend at Telluride), Merzak Allouache’s “The Repentant” (Cannes Directors Fortnight 2012) and Sally El Hosaini’s “My Brother the Devil” (Berlin 2012).
Crawl tells the emerging romance between Martin, a young man living on casual jobs and small robberies, and Gwen, a dedicated swimmer who trains everyday in the sea. Their lives change when she gets pregnant and he is charged with murder.
