About "The Search"by Michel Hazanavicius with Bérénice Bejo and Annette Bening, nominated in Official Selection of 2014 Cannes Film Festival. French release on November 26, 2014.
"The Search is very different from the earlier films, a drama against the background of the Chechnya conflict … we shot 99% of the film on the shoulder from 45-120! We kept some Cooke S5 –on wide shots or night sessions that were a bit complicated … but Michel doesn’t like wide shots much in general and this war film called for shots that were a bit “wild,” close ups, we had to constantly show urgency... The 45-120 was perfect."
