‘Lautrec’ to paint Toronto

Omirbaev in directors' spotlight

MONTREAL — Director Roger Planchon’s Gallic pic “Lautrec” will have its North American preem as a Gala presentation at the 23rd Toronto Intl. Film Festival.

The film toplines Regis Royer, Elsa Zylberstein and Claude Rich in the true-life tale of the tempestuous love affair between renowned artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Suzanne Valadon, the provincial beauty who modeled for Lautrec and many other legendary Impressionist painters. It is set in the bohemian milieu of Paris at the turn of the century.

Written and directed by Planchon, it is a Les Films du Losange/Le Studio Canal Plus/France 3 Cinema production, with Canal Plus handling international sales.

This year’s Directors Spotlight at the Toronto Festival will pay tribute to Kazakhstan helmer Darezhan Omirbaev. The sidebar series is traditionally devoted to directors whose pics are still relatively unknown in North America. Omirbaev pics set to screen at Toronto include “Cardiogram,” “July,” “Kairat” and “Killer.”
