2010 in the dark

I can't believe that most of 2010 is already gone. Summer is already on the decline... It's christmas in four months. But 2010 is nowhere near finished in the cinemas. There's a bunch of films I'm really eager to lay my eyes on. I already wrote about a couple on this blog (here and there) but here are some more personally anticipated :

Tournée directed by Mathieu Almaric (30 June 2010)
This is a road-movie where producer Joachim Zand (Mathieu Almaric) takes us with his neo-burlesque troupe all around France. They all dream of one thing : the big show in Paris !

Gainsbourg directed by Joann Sfar (30 July 2010)
As the title may or may not reveal, it is a biopic on Serge Gainsbourg, the provocative French singer, acclaimed for his sulfurous lyrics, his sense of melody as much as his impressive life-style. It is based on Joann Sfar's own graphic novel.

Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky directed by Jan Kounen (6 August 2010)
Again a very explicit title. And again a biopic. This film depicts the relationship between Miss Chanel and the Russian composer. And I know what you think... 'a film about Chanel... again?!'. Well yes, but as Coco before Chanel left us with Coco devastated by the death of her true love, this one picks up just after when things seem to look up for poor Coco : the creation of Chanel no.5 and a tempestuous Russian love affair.

L'Illusionniste directed by Sylvain Chomet (16 june 2010)
Do you remember Les Triplettes de Belleville? Here is the new animated film by the genius Sylvain Chomet. It looks as gloomy and eerie as his last chef-d'oeuvre and I'm sure that I will be sucked up in Chomet's world in one fingerclick just looking at all his impressive drawing details.
It tells the story of an old hat magician who meets a young girl believing in his magic. The setting is 1950's Edinburgh.
It is based on a script of French director Jacques Tati meant as a letter to his own daughter.
Trailer and stills because it's oh so pretty.

Norwegian Wood directed by Anh Hung Tranh (December 2010)
I can't begin to tell how much I love the book this film is based upon. Norwegian Wood (Haruki Murakami) is a major heart-stirrer for me. So it is with fear that I'm waiting for the release of this film. But I must say, seeing the trailer and the stills, it all looks very good. Also, lovely Rinko Kikuchi (Babel) plays Naoko and that makes me happy.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows directed by David Yates (19 November 2010)
