“Life is so different now.” Music Box Films has revealed an official US trailer for the French crime comedy titled The Crime Is Mine, one of the latest films from filmmaker François Ozon. This already opened in Europe earlier in 2023, some may already be familiar with it, but it’s only coming to the US this December. Madeleine Verdier, a young actress, is accused of murdering a famous producer – but did she really do it? After being acquitted in court, she begins her new life of fame and success bolstered by the attention, until the truth finally comes out. Starring Nadia Terezkiewicz and Rebecca Marder, a satirical commentary on cancel culture and the #MeToo movement with a tale of murderous women. Adapted from a 1934 play by Georges Berr & Louis Verneuil, featuring a murder’s row of a supporting cast members: Isabelle Huppert, Dany Boon, and Fabrice Luchini. The Crime Is Mine is a rollicking farce & scabrous satire with a wily feminist edge from one of French cinema’s most chameleonic stylists, Ozon. This looks super kooky & witty.
Here’s the official US trailer (+ poster) for François Ozon’s The Crime Is Mine, direct from:
Paris in the 1930s — a playground for industrial heirs and debonair architects, but the City of Lights does not shine evenly for all. Struggling actress Madeleine (Nadia Terezkiewicz) and her best friend Pauline (Rebecca Marder), an unemployed lawyer, live in a cramped flat and owe five months’ rent. Opportunity knocks after a lascivious theatrical producer who made an inappropriate advance towards Madeleine turns up dead. Madeleine stands trial for murder and ascends to decadent stardom, with Pauline serving as defense counsel and media circus ringmaster. A new life of fame, wealth, and tabloid celebrity awaits — until the truth comes out. The Crime Is Mine, originally known as Mon Crime in French, is directed by the acclaimed French filmmaker, director of many films including Sitcom, Criminal Lovers, Under the Sand, 8 Women, Potiche, In the House, Young & Beautiful, The New Girlfriend, Frantz, Double Lover, By the Grace of God, and Summer of 85, Everything Went Fine, and Peter von Kant previously. The screenplay is written by François Ozon in collaboration with Philippe Piazzo; based on the play of the same name by Georges Berr & Louis Verneuil. It’s produced by Eric Altmayer & Nicolas Altmayer. This already opened in French cinemas in March earlier this year. Music Box Films will debut Ozon’s The Crime Is Mine in select US theaters on December 25th, 2023, on Christmas Day, late this year. Who’s interested in this?
