Venice Preview: Xavier Beauvois’ ‘La rancon de la gloire’

Xavier Beauvois’ 1970’s set idiosyncratic comedy, ‘La rancon de la gloire’, was widely tipped for a world premiere at Cannes where his previous feature, ‘Of Gods and Men’ won the Grand Prix four years ago.  Instead, it has ended up at Venice where Beauvois has competed for the Golden Lion once before with the complex family drama, ‘To Matthieu’.  His latest has Benoît Poelvoorde playing an ex-con who plans to kidnap Charlie Chaplin’s corpse and collect a huge ransom from the legend’s family. academic writing
