La Semaine de la Critique unveils the poster of its 63rd edition

On the poster of the 63rd edition of La Semaine de la Critique, Hafsia Herzi extends a smile and a gaze to Nina Meurisse, in Iris Kaltenbäck’s first feature film The Rapture. 

Hafsia Herzi tugs at our heartstrings, with her piercing earnestness and soothing generosity. A young woman who is deeply rooted in life, as straightforward as she is secretive, noble and rebellious. 

La Semaine de la Critique is the ever-repeating story of an encounter, that rare, precious moment when a first opus reveals the promise of a great artist. In 2019 Hafsia Herzi had already directed You Deserve a Lover - which was screened at a special screening of La Semaine. An actress’s deeply moving endeavour to share with us her wildest dreams, the results / fruits of her struggle, and her first steps as a filmmaker. Much like Frida Kahlo wrote in her poem of the same name: “You deserve a lover who wants to dance with you, who goes to paradise every time he looks into your eyes and never gets tired of studying your expressions.”

For the last 63 years, La Semaine de la Critique has been sharing its passion for cinema, harbinger of what is to come, year in, year out, assisting short-film and feature-film directors sharing their outlook on the world we live in.  

La Semaine de la Critique, Cannes parallel selection dedicated to first and second films with be held from May 15th to May 23rd, 2024.
