Kilian Riedhof’s big screen adaptation of Antoine Leiris’ bestselling memoir ‘Vous n’aurez pas ma haine’ has wrapped after 34 days of shooting in Cologne at MMC Studios Köln GmbH, in Paris, and on Corsica.
The film tells the story of Antoine Leiris (Pierre Deladonchamps), who lost his wife (Camélia Jordana) during the terror attack on the Bataclan Theater in Paris, and who is left behind with his 17 months old son Melvil (Zoé Iorio).
In a Facebook post, he contrasts the hate of the attackers with his love for his son. But inside he struggles with himself, with the anger and despair to which he does not want to give himself up.
‘Meinen Hass bekommt ihr nicht’ (German title) is produced by Komplizen Film, in co-production with Haut et Court (FR) and Frakas (BE). Co-producers on the German side are NDR/ARTE, TOBIS, Erftal Film, and MMC Movies Cologne.
The film is backed by Film and Media Foundation NRW, DFFF, FFA, the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, Eurimages, and FFHSH, among others.
