Eurimages funds Dardennes’ pic

Cash goes to Barratier

Funding body Eurimages has handed e360,000 ($500,000) to the next project from Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne, the Belgian brothers who won the Palme d’Or at Cannes in 2005 for social drama “L’Enfant.”

French-Belgian pic “Le Silence de Lorna” centers on an arranged marriage of an illegal immigrant from Albania to a drug addict. Pic stars Jeremie Renier, who also headlined “L’Enfant.”

Eurimages shared $6 million among 12 border-crossing co-productions at its latest funding session this week.

More than $1 million went to Christophe Barratier (“Les Choristes”) for “Faubourg 36,” about a group of actors in 1930s France, which is backed by Germany’s Constantin Film.

Swedish helmer Lukas Moodysson, best known for teen drama “Fucking Amal,” picked up a similar amount for “Mammoth,” as did Nicolas Bary for feature debut “The Children of Timpelbach.”

Bary’s $18 million pic, a family fantasy adapted from a popular French children’s book, stars Gerard Depardieu, Jean-Claude Dreyfus, Armelle Deutsch and Isabelle Nanty.
