Cinema Nouveau to release “3 Hearts” plus two other titles, following success at European Film Festival

JUNE 22, 2015

Three films that performed particularly well at the recent European Film Festival (EUFF), hosted by Cinema Nouveau, will be afforded a wider release over the next few months.

The films are: 3 Hearts (France), which releases on Friday, 26 June; Two Days, One Night (Belgium) that will be screened from 03 July; and A Second Chance (Denmark), which will be released on Friday, 28 August.

The romantic drama, 3 Hearts (French, with English sub-titles), is the new film from veteran director Benoit Jacquot (Farewell, My Queen), and stars film legend Catherine Deneuve as Madame Berger, alongside Charlotte Gainsbourg, Chiara Mastroianni and Benoit Poelvoorde.  The film featured in the 2014 Venice International Film Festival.

A touching and tense drama about destiny, connections, and passion, 3 Hearts presents a headily romantic look at a classic love triangle with a hint of Greek tragedy. 

One night in provincial France, Marc (Benoît Poelvoorde) meets Sylvie (Charlotte Gainsbourg) after missing his train back to Paris. Instantly and intensely drawn to one another, they wander through the streets until morning in rare, almost choreographed, harmony. They talk about everything except themselves.

A thwarted plan for a second meeting in Paris sends each in a separate direction - Sylvie reunites with her ex-boyfriend and leaves France; Marc falls in love with Sophie (Chiara Mastroianni) and marries her.

When Marc and Sylvie do meet again, their unparalleled harmony still exists, but the hand that fate has dealt them decides otherwise.
