Overview
1
'HOTEL AMERICA (HOTEL DES AMERIQUES)' In this riveting romantic drama, CATHERINE DENEUVE stars Helene, a successful anesthesiologist whose chance encounter with the mysterious Gilles (PATRICK DEWAERE) leads to an intense relationship. But when Gilles' deep-rooted insecurities and jealousies take him over, Helene realizes his instability might have dire consequences.

'I DON'T KISS (J'EMBRASSE PAS)' Techine's striking visual portrait of a young man searching for the meaning of life stars MANUEL BLANC in a Cesar Award-winning performance as the naive Pierre. After ignoring sage advice from an older gay man (PHILIPPE NOIRET), Pierre gives up his dream of becoming an actor and enters the dark world of male prostitution in PAris. But his luck goes even more awry when he falls in love with a beautiful female prostitute (EMMANUELLE BEART) leading to tragic consequences. J'EMBRASSE PAS also garnered Cesar Award nominations for Best Director and Best Supporting Actress (Helene Vincent).

2
'MY FAVORITE SEASON (MA SAISON PREFEREE)' Acclaimed at the Cannes Film Festival, this emotionally charged and profoundly perceptive drama earned Techine comparisons to Ingmar Bergman and John Cassavetes ('The New York Times'). Techine's rich, bittersweet story of an estranged brother and sister (DANIEL AUTEUIL, CATHERINE DENEUVE) who are drawn together after their mother's stroke received seven Cesar Award nominations, including Best Film and Best Director.

3
'WILD REEDS (LES ROSEAUX SAUVAGES)' Considered by many to be Techine's masterwork, this compelling coming-of-age drama set during the Algerian War paints a rich portrait of four teens in Provence and their divergent political and personal viewpoints. A multilayered character study, WILD REEDS won Cesar Awards for Best Film, Best Director, Best Writing and Most Promising Actress (Elodie Bouchez) and received Best Foreign Film honors from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, New York Film Critics Circle and National Society of Film Critics.
