ARNAUD & JEAN MARIE LARRIEU

 

The filmmakers on the in focus category on the 18th Curtas were the French Arnaud and Jean Marie Larrieu. On that edition, a retrospective of their most recent works took place and the siblings were in Vila do Conde to present their films. With an intense work on the short film format during the 90’s, they were present on the international competition of Curtas, in 2000, with “La brèche de Roland”. Since 1999, this team started a unique path on the feature films with five fictions and an autobiographical documentary that culminated with the presence on Cannes official competition with “Peindre ou faire l’amour".

 

This film, which was also screened on Curtas in 2005, allowed the filmmakers to reach an international audience through the commercial distribution in several countries, Portugal included. The projects of this team of siblings have several obsessions, especially due to presence of the mountain as a mythical horizon on their movies. Their surprising narratives, where sex is the liberation moment between conflicting couples, are well recognized. For that, getting to know the fundamental moments of this universe was worth it. Curtas Vila do Conde shown their latest feature films, with emphasis on their latest film “Les dernieres jours du monde” (2009)."
