Swiss Premiere
MAESTRO by Léa Fazer,,  F 2014,  84 min,  DCP
French with English subtitles

While dreaming of big action cinema, young actor Henri finds himself starring in a small arthouse production, directed by aging grand film-auteur Cedric Rovère. Rovère is instantly touched by Henri’s youth and naiveté, and for a moment it looks like he completely over-rates him. But indeed, Henri’s partner’s charm and the “Maestro’s“ kindness will ignite emotions and capacities previously unknown for him, and also for Rovère his last film becomes an unexpected gift ...

Léa Fazers effortless heartfelt comedy with a great Michael Lonsdale as Rovère is dedicated to Nouvelle Vague-icon Eric Rohmer, who passed away in 2010.
