Joachim Lafosse in Craponne

"Every tragedy starts off like a love story.”

Joachim Lafosse’s personal obsession is revealing just to what extent hell is paved with good intentions. Much of his work targets the ambiguous feelings at the crossroads between right and wrong. Intending to bring difficult and complex topics to wider audiences, he directed Private Property (2006) with Isabelle Huppert and Jérémie Renier, selected for the Venice Film Festival 2006, and Loving without Reason/ Our Children (2012) with Emilie Dequenne (Best Actress in Un Certain Regard at the Cannes Film Festival 2012), Tahar Rahim, and Niels Arestrup.

The influences he cites - Pialat, the Dardenne brothers, Haneke, Cassavetes - undoubtedly inspire his understanding of the image and the frame as well as an ability to shoot the fragility and unbearable perversity of human relationships.

Le Grand Lyon meets one of the most talented filmmakers of his generation, Joachim Lafosse, October 15th.
