Cold? Surly? Falsely relaxed? What will be the best qualifier to designate the atmosphere that will reign this Friday evening, Salle Pleyel, in Paris, on the occasion of the 45th edition of the Cesars? The only thing we know is that lukewarmness will not be there.
Between the indignation aroused by the twelve appointments granted to Roman Polanski and his J'accuse and the repercussions of the collective resignation of the board of directors of the Césars in mid-February after 400 personalities signed a petition to denounce his "dysfunctions" , the context is very tense and the “big family” of French cinema appears more disunited than ever.
We almost forget that the objective of the evening is to reward the most significant films of the past year. Besides J'accuse , La Belle Epoque , Les Misérables and Portrait of the young girl on fire each have more than ten nominations… Are the big winners of the evening among them?
