An adaptation of novelist Albert Cohen’s Belle du seigneur is currently in front of the cameras in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

The directorial debut of Glenio Bondi has had a long road to production with various cast switches and it is finally Irish actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers who has taken on the role of Solal, a United Nations diplomat who falls in love with a woman, Ariane (Natalia Vodianova), in Geneva in the 1930s.

Besides Rhys Meyers (The Tudors, Match Point [trailer]) and Vodianova, a model-turned-actress who’s been the face of Guerlain and starred as Medusa in the recent blockbuster The Clash of the Titans, the period romance will also benefit from the presence of English songstress and actress Marianne Faithfull (Irina Palm [trailer, film focus], Intimacy) and Swedish thespian Maria Bonnevie (I Am Dina [trailer], The Banishment).
The screenplay was written by the director, himself a former U.N. diplomat representing Brazil, and Oscar-nominated writers Vincenzo Cerami (La vita è bella) and James Dearden (Fatal Attraction).

Further talent behind the cameras includes cinematographer Eduardo Serra, who earlier shot The Girl With the Pearl Earring [trailer] in the Grand Duchy, Luxembourg-based production designer Christina Schaffer (Earring, Réfractaire [trailer, film focus], House of Boys) and composer Gabriel Yared, an Oscar winner for The English Patient.

The film, backed by the Luxembourg Film Fund, is produced by Bob Bellion and Jimmy de Brabant for Delux Productions and Thierry de Navacelle for French outfit TNVO.
