The Night of 12 leads the nominations for the Lumière awards, before the race for the Césars


International press correspondents gave 6 citations to Dominik Moll's thriller. This is followed by Saint-Omer, Pacification and Les Enfants des autres.

The prize season is in full swing in France.

After the Louis Delluc prize - nicknamed the "Goncourt of tricolor cinema" -, the Academy of Lights enters the arena.

The institution, which brings together journalists from the international press based in France, announced its nominations on Thursday.

They are generally a good indicator of those that the Caesar Academy will announce on January 25.

Dominik Moll 's thriller

La Nuit du 12

has won the most citations with six chances for statuettes when the Lumières prizes will be awarded on January 16 at the Forum des images in Paris.

A relentless cop's investigation into an unexplained feminicide beats

Pacifiction - Torment on the Islands

by Albert Serra, which garners five nominations.

Saint Omer

by Alice Diop, awarded in Venice, is not far behind with four nominations.




Saint Omer

had already shared the Louis-Delluc prize.

Among the films selected, there is also the beautiful portrait of a woman tormented by the desire for children and motherhood

Les Enfants des autres

by Rebecca Zlotowski and the brilliant comedy of robbery by Louis Garrel,


Revoir Paris

by Alice Winocour completes the best film category.

In the best staging section are two female directors.

Rebecca Zlotowski on the one hand.

And Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi, on the other hand, who defends her very controversial

Les Amandiers

, whose main actor, Sofiane Bennacer, is indicted for rape and violence against a spouse.

Dominik Moll, Albert Serra and Gasper Noé - whose


is present in two other categories - complete the selection.

The films selected by the Académie des Lumières are works that have achieved consensus among critics and have for some found their audience in theaters, such as The Night of 12, Chronicle of a Passing Liaison or The Children of Others.

But the voters completely left out the biopic of Simone Veil signed Olivier Dahan.

Despite its two million spectators,

Le voyage du siècle

does not appear in any of the categories.
