Directed by: Anne Fontaine

Synopsis: Anne Fontaine is no stranger to Festival audiences: we have shown every one of her features. Two of her earlier films, Augustin and Augustin, roi du kung-fu, were based around the fictional figure of Augustin Dos Santos, a hopeful, but hopelessly bad, bitpart actor trying to find his way in a world that does not suit him. Augustin returns in Nouvelle Chance - as does Jean-Chrétien Sibertin-Blanc, Fontaine’s brother, who has played the role in each film. It is now clear that Augustin is to Fontaine what Antoine Doinel was to François Truffaut: a character at the centre of a richly evolving universe. Bemused, bewildered and slightly inept, Augustin is nevertheless a kind of foil for everything in the narrative world that seems to unfold mysteriously in front of him.
