Director: Michel Hazanavicius
The big Oscar win for his silent Hollywood homage The Artist threw French filmmaker Michel Hazanavicius onto the global stage. But Hazanavicius was already known in France for his Bond-like spy spoofs, the OSS 117 films. Pastiche and honouring other filmmakers are his sweet spots, and here he throws us into the remaking of a cult Japanese zombie flick, One Cut of the Dead. The film stars Romain Duris and Bérénice Bejo, and it looks set to be as much a making-of movie as another tribute to a movie-making style.
