French newspaper to publish a French version of cult-comedy film about cults
The French-language French newspaper Le Figaro will publish a movie version of a cult-film by the French-American director Joseph Mancini called Cultures.
The film is a “spiel about a French cult that was very popular in France” in the early 20th century, according to a statement by the paper’s executive editor Laurent Boucher.
The movie was inspired by the cults of Mancinis brother, Bernard, the film’s producer.
Bernard Mancinelli was a popular director in France.
In the movie, the narrator describes the “French cult of Mascots” in his own words, and goes on to say the film was “a movie about the French cult of Bernard Mascot” as well.
Mancini’s cult film has been described as a cult classic, with the French Ministry of Culture saying it won the French Academy Award for Best Foreign Film in 2001.
