‘Tide’ seeks second wave

Moreau campaigns for pic's re-release

PARIS — Gilles Porte, co-helmer of the Cesar winner for first film, “When the Tide Comes In,” raised a ruckus Thursday because the pic has not been re-released since winning its Gallic laurel.

Pic also took actress kudo for Yolande Moreau, also co-helmer, in the tale of a performer and her fan.

“Who are these ‘deciders’ sitting behind their desks in Paris who choose for the public which film is popular and which is not?” Porte raged Thursday.

The Cesar wins were two of a series of upsets at Saturday’s ceremony, where prizes went to outsiders while favorites “The Chorus” and “A Very Long Engagement” failed to snag major trophies.

In receiving her statuette, Moreau reminded the glitterati that “When the Tide Came In” had never unspooled at a multiplex.

Other Cesar winners “L’Esquive,” a low-budget pic from helmer Abdellatif Kechiche, and Arnaud Desplechin’s “Kings and Queens,” have been re-released on a handful of screens.
