Le Grande Chariot

Cinema for the Garrels has always been a family affair but Philippe Garrel‘s 28th features feel a tad more special. Starring Louis Garrel, Esther Garrel, Léna Garrel, Aurélien Recoing, Damien Mongin, Francine Bergé, Mathilde Weil, Asma Messaoudene and marionette artists, Le Grande Chariot (formerly known as “La lune crevée”) moved into production early in 2022. Written by the director alongside Jean-Claude Carrière, Arlette Langmann and Caroline Deruas, the story charts the fantastic yet tragic destiny of three puppet artist siblings.

Gist: Three siblings, a father and a grandmother who run a travelling puppet show. When the father dies during a performance, the remaining family members try to keep his legacy alive.

Release Date/Prediction: We’re assuming Garrel will return to Berlinale for a comp entry — it was originally programmed for a domestic March drop.
