LAURENCE ANYWAYS – XAVIER DOLAN 2012

LAURENCE ANYWAYS – XAVIER DOLAN 2012

ART CINEMA AWARD – HamburgFilmFest 2012 

Synopsis : Set in the 90’s, Laurence tries to salvage his relationship with his fiancée Fred after revealing to her his aspirations of becoming a woman. Laurence Anyways is the story of a wild and unusual love.

The Jury’s Verdict : Graceful and powerful, effortlessly staged and with an astonishing intensity, young Canadian director and author Xavier Dolan succeeds in creating a colorful, musically and emotionally charged piece on the challenging topic of transsexuality. Dolan proves he is more than capable of expressing this melodramatic love story revealed through gorgeous details. 

Being a man, being a woman and being human at the same time are fundamental questions reflected by Dolan’s film. Therefore this movie has the potential of reaching a young audience with usually little affinity for arthouse productions.

The jury : 

* Raphael Lie (CH), Kult.Kino AG, Bâle

* Erdmann Lange (DE), Atlantis Filmtheaterbetriebs GmbH, Mannheim
