Benoît Jacquot is a festival veteran, last doing the rounds with 2012’s costume drama “Farewell, My Queen.” Now he’s back with a more contemporary tale, riffing on an old theme, while rounding some exciting talent to tell his story. The film is called “Three Hearts,” and with screenings at Venice and TIFF coming up soon, the first trailer has dropped.
Benoît Poelvoorde, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Chiara Mastroianni and Catherine Deneuve star in the film, which Jacquot co-wrote and directed, about a love triangle that develops between a man and two sisters. After Marc has a fling in small town France with Sylvie, he meets Sophie, falls deeply in love, and marries her. The twist? Sophie and Sylvie are close siblings, and when all is revealed, the drama cranks up a few notches.
Intriguing stuff, with a great cast to take it on, so we’ll keep an eye out. Watch the trailer below.
