The months following the attacks
Jean Dujardin came to Cannes to present the movie “November” directed by Cédric Jimenez. In this feature film, the director whose film “Bac Nord” caused controversy in the city of Cannes last year, addresses the months following the attacks of November 13, 2015 in Paris. That evening, in just a few hours, jihadist commandos killed 130 and injured 350 in Paris and the suburbs, near the Stade de France, on terraces in the capital and in the Bataclan performance hall.

The movie traces the course of the attacks, but in particular the five days of tracking down members of the anti-terrorist brigade, which followed the tragedy. The cast of the film, which will be released on October 5 in French cinemas, lit up the red carpet. November is one of the rare projects of such magnitude to deal with the attacks of November 13, 2015, which left 130 dead and 350 injured at the Bataclan, on the terraces of Paris and at the Stade de France. Jean Dujardin and Sandrine Kiberlain in the main roles are there to conduct this five-day investigation which held all of France in suspense at the time, in search of jihadist commandos. The first screening of the film therefore took place in Cannes on Sunday evening, where it was out of competition, preceded by the rise of the steps of the cast. Indeed, Cédric Jimenez surrounded himself with his actors and actresses in front of the photographers. The director was particularly shown to be very complicit with Jean Dujardin, with whom he had already shot La French in 2014.
