INNUENDO Makes its Cannes Premiere

by BWW News Desk

The critically acclaimed Innuendo by the first time director Saara Lamberg has caused a bit of a stir in Cannes, because the director organised nude models for her audience to draw.First the passbyers had the opportunity to draw a model at the Cannes Cinephiles office on the Boulevard de la Croisette and later at the cinema before the opening speeches and the film. 

INNUENDO, shot in Finland and Australia, tells a story of a disillusioned life model with a dark past and vivid imagination. FilmInk compared the film with the works of Lynch, Lanthimos and Polanski and The Movie Blog with the Aussie indie movies of the 70s. The film is represented by the Hollywood Fame award winner James Dudelson of Blairwood entertaiment, who also represented the legendary Picnic At The Hanging Rock and Coca Cola Kid.

"I am going back to to represent more theatrical titles now, I am going to scale back on how many producers I represent. Saara Lamberg is going to be one of the only ones as I believe in her unique talent as a filmmaker." Dudelson says. 

Lamberg is now working on her next film Westermarck Effect, which is likely to cause a stir in itself."The film tells a story of a biological mother and her son falling romantically in love. I'm interested in stories that other people are too scared to tell. Before starting to film Innuendo, an old A-lister director told me I could go to jail for making it. I did my research and found out he was just trying to daunt me and went ahead and made the film anyway. What is cinema if not the place to tell all sorts of stories, challenging, thrilling and unusual." Lamberg says.

The audiences will have one more opportunity to see INNUENDO at the Cannes Cinephiles encore screening: WED 16th at 9am at the Le Studio 13.
