French Love ‘Amour,’ Too

Gallic Oscar noms feted at consul general's L.A. residence

For Michael Haneke, whose “Amour” took home the foreign-language Oscar, the road to the Dolby Theater began in Cannes, where the stark drama won the Palme d’Or.

So it was appropriate to see the Austrian helmer smiling with Cannes topper Thierry Fremaux at the French Residence in BevHills, where French noms were applauded for flying the tri-colors to a global audience.

Hosted by the consul general of France Axel Cruau and organized by the French Film and TV Office, Monday’s sunny afternoon soiree drew the four producers of “Amour” — Margaret Menegoz and fellow Euros Michael Katz, Veit Heiduschka and Stefan Arndt — as well as French nominees Emmanuelle Riva (“Amour”), Cedric Nicolas Troyan (“Snow White and the Huntsman”), Alexandre Desplat (“Argo”), Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schonberg (“Les Miserables”) and Guy Davidi (“Five Broken Cameras”).
