THE “LOVELESS” BY ANDREY ZVYAGINTSEV WON THE CESAR AWARD
The «Loveless» by Andrey Zvyagintsev won the national film award of France – the Cesar Award at the 43rd Ceremony. That's a real breakthrough of the Russian cinema worldwide as a movie produced in Russia got the Cesar Award for the first time! Having been nominated for “Best Foreign Film” “Loveless” competed against “The Nile Hilton Incident” by Tarik Saleh, “Dunkirk” by Christopher Nolan, “L’Echange des Princesses” by Marc Dugain, “La-la-Land” by Damien Chazelle, “Wedding” by Stephan Streker and even Palme d’Or of the 70th Festival de Cannes winner “The Square” by Ruben Ostlund. Staying in Los-Angeles before The Oscars 90th Ceremony Andrey Zvyagintsev couldn’t attend to the Cesar Award. So Eric Lagesse, the CEO of Pyramide International – the distribution company of all Zvyagintsev’s movies in France,- climbed the stage to get the Award from Sophie Marceau’s and Pierre Richard’s hands. Roskino congratulations and sincere words of recognition for Andrey Zvyagintsev, the producers of the “Loveless” Alexander Rodnyansky and Sergey Melkumov and the whole crew that had given their filming and production skills to the movie!
