While all eyes are on Venice, Telluride, Toronto, New York, and London as the places where the new wave of big, anticipated movies are scheduled hit during the fall festival run, cinephiles will want to keep their eye on Locarno. That’s where “Attenberg” director Athina Rachel Tsangari will unveil her new film, “Chevalier,” and it looks terrifically bonkers.
Yorgos Kentros, Panos Koronis, Vangelis Mourikis, Makis Papadimitriou, Yorgos Pirpassopoulos, Sakis Rouvas, Yiannis Drakopoulos, Nikos Orfanos, and Kostas Philippoglou star in the movie about six men who take a fishing trip on a luxury yacht and start playing a game, with the winner being granted the titular ring. As the first trailer reveals, there is a points system, but i’ll be damned if I know how it works.
No U.S. date has been set for this yet, but hopefully it surfaces on the stateside festival circuit too. Watch below. [Indiewire]
