Hadewijch stars Julie Sokolowski, Yassine Salime and Davis Dewaele in a story about Celine, a young woman dismissed from the convent for her shockingly blind, ecstatic faith.
Returning to her life as the daughter of a diplomat, Celine's passionate love of God, her rage and an encounter with two men lead her down dangerous paths. The film is set for release in spring 2009.
The Girl From Monaco, by Anne Fontaine stars Fabrice Luchini, Louise Bourgoin and Roschdy Zem. Pyramide says the story follows a neurotic attorney who goes to Monaco to defend a 70-year old criminal but instead falls for a beautiful she-devil.
Among other new films on the line up are award-winning director Karin Albou's The Wedding Song, Ilan Duran Cohen's Spy And Sing with Lorant Deutsch and Marina Fois and Leaving by Catherine Corsini with Kristin Scott Thomas, Sergi Lopez and Yvan Attal.
Pyramide is handling sales on competition title Three Monkeys by Nuri Bilge Ceylan; UCR selection Salt Of This Sea from Annemarie Jacir; special screening documentary It's Hard Being Loved By Jerks from Daniel Leconte and Critics' Week entry Snow from Aida Begic.
