“Bac Nord”, “Titane” or “L’Événement”: one of these three films will represent France at the 2022 Oscars

The second candidate is as popular as it is controversial. North Bac, the film by Cédric Jimenez which tells the misadventures of a band of Marseille cops, is approaching 2 million spectators in France. In Cannes, where he was presented out of competition, an Irish journalist had accused the filmmaker of playing into the far right’s game, criticizing him for the poorly nuanced portrait of the population of the northern districts. The latter defended himself at the time, but the film has since been cited as an example of immigration problems by Marine Le Pen, then Eric Zemmour.

The third pre-selected movie may be the one that will steal the other two. The event, Audrey Diwan’s second film, won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival last September. Adapted from the eponymous novel by Annie Ernaux, it tells the story of a young woman who decides to have an abortion in conservative France in the 1960s. The film was due for release in early 2022, but its producers have brought its release forward to November 24. that he could be in the running for the Oscars, but also the Caesar. They weren’t wrong!
