The 38-year-old artist plays a comedian based in Los Angeles (United States) with his partner, a world-famous singer played by French actress Marion Cotillard. The film depicts the torments of the lovers after the birth of their daughter Annette, with an extraordinary destiny.
In this crazy show about love, glory and falling, co-written and set to music by the American group Sparks, there is hardly a sentence that is not sung.
Screened at the opening of the Cannes festival last July, the film “Annette”, which received the prize for directing, one of Cannes’ highest distinctions, has accumulated 11 nominations, including those for Best Film, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay.
