See me as you've never seen me
before in my first film role as Didier la Flore the butcher in ROSBEEF.
(After all it is the 100th anniversary of the Entente Cordiale).
The World Premiere screening of ROSBEEF will take
place on Monday 17th May at the Palm Beach in Cannes.
This is the story of
a tale of love, lust and a kilo of sausages
ROSBEEF is a new Anglo French short
that has just finished production, written and directed by Bruce Burgess.
It was shot on 35mm, on location in Southern France, with a French Cast,
and English Crew.
Set in hard times of post war 1950s rural France its the
story of a young butcher, Didier la Flore, played by David Ginola, whos
arrival in the small French village of Ramoulet causes quite a stir.
The new, handsome boucher cuts quite a dash with his open shirt, tanned
chest and white teeth, as he transforms the little butchers shop on
Word soon spread fast about bon rump on display, and the shop was buzzing
with excited female patrons. But the young Boucher was lonely. He needed
a good woman.
And before long he had one. Unfortunately not his own.
The result has a real sting in the tale for all involved
The French Cast includes: ISIS EYMERY,
BERNARD DETOUCHES, VALERIE TREBOR , VINCENT AUDAT, THEO TRIFFARD and
The Director of Photography is TIM WOOSTER, whose credits
include Cold Mountain, Enigma, Shakespeare in Love, From Hell, The Count
