After directing the brilliant long form music video for M.I.A.’s superb new track, Born Free, Romain Gavras proved that he was far more than just the son of a brilliant filmmaker.
The director not only seems deeply inspired by his father, but is seeming to follow directly in the steps of his highly intellectual pops, Costa-Gavras (Z, Missing). Well, now he’s making his feature film debut, with the upcoming film Notre Jour Viendra, or Our Day Will Come.
The film was originally known as Redheads, and stars Vincent Cassel (La Haine) and Olivier Barthelemy. It follows a teen who leaves for Ireland after being victim of abuse from the people around him. This is our first look at the film, and I must say, while it gives us little to nothing to chew on when it comes to narrative, it looks absolutely stunning. It looks low on contrast, and high on naturalistic style. It’s definitely NSFW, but it’s something that you should see, and watch a billion times, because it’s bloody brilliant.
