The Last Diamond

Synopsis

The “Florentin”, a fabled, 137-carat yellow diamond last seen in 1918, has resurfaced and is up for sale at an exclusive Antwerp auction house. Simon, a thief recently released on parole, is bullied into taking on the most intricate and riskiest theft of his career. To succeed, he must get close to Julia, a beautiful diamond expert, for whom the sale is of considerable personal importance.

Simon starts to assemble the pieces of his elaborate ruse, suspecting that he is just another piece of someone else’s complex jigsaw puzzle. But when no one is who they appear to be, the streetwise don’t make their move until the last mask comes off. And beyond the boldly daring theft, Simon will lead Julia toward a destiny that she could never have imagined.

Following in the tradition of Jean-Pierre Melville’s Le Cercle Rouge and The Thomas Crown Affair, Eric Barbier’s new film sees French A-lister Yvan Attal team up with The Artist’s Oscar-nominated star Bérénice Bejo to bring the sophisticated heist movie roaring back to life.

Assassin

9th century China. 10-year old general's daughter Nie Yinniang is abducted by a nun who initiates her into the martial arts, transforming her into an exceptional assassin charged with eliminating cruel and corrupt local governors. Oneday, having failed in a task, she is sent back by her mistress to the land of her birth, with orders to kill the man to whom she was promised - a cousin who now leads the largest military region in North China. After 13 years of exile, the young woman must confront her parents, her memories and her long-repressed feelings. A slave to the orders of her mistress, Nie Yinniang must choose: sacrifice the man she loves or break forever with the sacred way of the righteous assassins.

The Clan

Official Selection TIFF and Venice International Film festival 2015, and the Official foreign language Oscar entry for Argentina.

From the producers of Wild Tales and directed by Pablo Trapero (White Elephant, Lion's Den, Carancho) five times selected in Cannes, comes THE CLAN, a suspense thriller based on the sordid controversial real-life case that shocked Argentina in the 80's.

Argentina in the early eighties. Within a typical family home in the traditional neighborhood of San Isidro, a sinister clan makes its living off kidnapping and murder.

Arquímedes, the patriarch, heads and plans the operations. Alejandro, his eldest son, is a star rugby player at CASI—a prestigious local club—and the Argentine mythical national team (Los Pumas). The son gives in to his father’s will and identifies possible candidates for kidnapping; his popularity shields him from suspicion.

To a greater or lesser extent, the members of the family are accomplices in this dreadful venture as they live off the benefits yielded by the large ransoms paid by the families of their victims.

Based on the true story of the Puccio family, this film full of suspense and intrigue takes place in the context of the final years of the Argentine military dictatorship and incipient return to democracy.
