“Waiting for the Barbarians” will also going to be screened in France!!!
Johnny’s latest movie directed by Ciro
Guerra, featuring Mark Rylance and Robert Pattinson and based on the novel
of the same name by J. M. Coetzee, is set to be screened at the 45th Deauville
American Film Festival in France.
The festival will happen from September 6 to September
15 but the official date for the screening is yet to be revealed. Also different from the other
festivals, the movie will only have a premiere and is not in a competition.
This will be the second official screening
of the movie, after the Venice Film Festival in September 6 in Italy, and later
the San Sebastian Film Festival, between September 20 to September 28, in Spain.
Let’s stay tuned for the official date for
the premiere and also if cast will attend this festival. Up until now it seems that Robert Pattinson is confirmed to attend the festival but due to his movie “The Lighthouse” by Robert Eggers is on competition for the The Lucien-Barriere Literary Award.
Another day, another festival! Congratulations!
Waiting for the Barbairans will be screened at the 44th Festival Deauville ( from 6 to 15 September 2019) in France!!!
10 must-watch movies from the 2019 Venice Film Festival:
Waiting for the Barbarians
Colombian director Ciro Guerra charmed critics with 2015’s Embrace of the Serpent and 2018’s Birds of Passage. This year, he brings the same lyricism to Waiting for the Barbarians, a dramatisation of JM Coetzee’s novel of the same name. Johnny Depp takes centre stage as a bureaucrat sent to quell a mutiny in a colonial town, while Mark Rylance plays a magistrate who questions imperialism. The final product is a pertinent assessment of immigration and integration, exposing the fear governments instil in their populace to encourage them to turn the other way.
San Sebastian Film Festival:
Waiting for the Barbarians will be shown during The Perlak section at the 67th edition of the San Sebastian Festival. It will compete for the City of Donostia/San Sebastian Audience Award, which includes two prizes: one for best film and the other for best European film

“Johnny and Mark (Rylance) were happy to share (experiences).
One raised the level of the other, as in an unspoken competition within what
they were raising. It was very impressive to see these artists of huge magnitude
on stage, to see these artists at the top of their art.” – Ciro Guerra about working with an a-list cast on today’s interview for the Colombian site “El Tiempo”.
And what a cute smile!
Countdown for the world premiere at
