BrusselsLife with Joachim Lafosse
His last film, Nue Propriété (Naked Property), has received critical acclaim from the specialist press. Extremely well interpreted by Isabelle Huppert and the brothers Jérémie and Yannick Rénier, it was presented at the film competition of the Mostra of Venice. For Joachim Lafosse, it was a huge satisfaction: " Next to Lynch and Resnais... What an honor! "
It makes you happy...
Previously, in August 2006, he had presented " Ça rend heureux " (It makes you happy), a film about a young penniless Belgian director, who wants to make a film about a young penniless Belgian director? This one had received the public's award at the Brussels European Film festival before being selected again at the official selection of the Locamo festival. In a word, all this to say that Joachim Lafosse is a young and promising film director. And he is from Brussels which is not without influence on his films: " Brussels is a marvellous town because it is possible for different communities to live together here". For him, he will not leave Brussels, no way. He feels so much at ease there. And something tells us that Brussels will be once again very present in his next films?
