  1. #1 Film Monsieur Lazhar (nominee for best foreign film Oscar 2012) shot on RedOne MX. 
    Just to mention that i've work as DIT on film Monsieur Lazhar (nominee for best foreign film Oscar 2012) and it was shot on RedOne Mx, Redcode 42, 2.35 aspect with Cooke S4 set.

    Offline editing was at Post-Moderne (http://www.post-moderne.com/). Color correction and film print at Vision Globale (CitéLab) (http://www.visionglobale.com/index.php).

    This is an amazing film, shoot was fantastic and feel like a summer camp for all... Fantastic crew and great cast !

    IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2011971/
    TRAILER: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjNCkxnT-xE

    Don't want to be "fanboy", but RedOne with MX sensor, super35 possibilities, and tapeless (Redrive and CF) was the best tool over any camera at that time for that project... It make it simple to shoot with kids and basic lighting kit.

    What a shame it says 35mm on IMDB :

    I'll try to see it tonight, I'm very curious.

    Recently I checked the IMDB page and it still says 35mm film as the source format, someone must've messed with it. The movie itself looks beautiful.

    Etienne.


    It has been released to DVD here. I shall have a look. Thanks for the advice.

     

    Kristen.

    There have been a few French language social dramas which have not demonised Arabic speaking people. One more recent had Omar Sharif in it. Are you old enough to remember "Madame Rosa"?

    Furthur to above comments, I rented the DVD and I was impressed. It had a little more resonance for me perhaps in that at my high school way back in the sixties, one of our teachers took her own life, not in the school. She was the most beautiful of the bunch and one of the youngest. One day, she just wasn't there. It wasn't talked about much, certainly no formal announcement that I recall.
