He had just learned that Saint Laurent , the film by Bertrand Bonello had been chosen to represent France at the Oscars for Best Foreign Film. “It’s convenient two days before the release of the movie because I think it’s something that can help them do know and drain the spectators in the galleries,” says the young actor.

It was not until Jan. 15 to hear if Saint Laurent is retained or not among the competitors for this prestigious award. “We recognize that the sulfur side of the film can serve in America and there are many prestigious competitors who may be favored by the academy, but it’s great to have this opportunity,” said Gaspard Ulliel .
Among them, other works noticed in Cannes as Mommy Xavier Dolan, The Tribe Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy or Winter Sleep by Nuri Bilge Ceylan seem uniquely positioned … Saint Laurent will be shown in French theaters Wednesday, September 24.
