American filmmaker David Fincher will receive on Friday, February 24, 2023, on the stage of the Olympia, the César d’Honneur of the 48th César Ceremony.
David Fincher is one of those rare directors whose entire filmography has become emblematic over the years. An outstanding technician, a true visionary, his cinema is hypnotic, cerebral, a source of inspiration for countless artists.
He shocked us with “Seven“, kept us on the edge with “The Game“, and hit us again with “Fight Club“. With “Zodiac“, “The Social Network“, “Gone Girl“, his greatest success in cinema, or even “Mank“, he broke his usual codes and received the praise of the international press.
Coming from the world of music videos, David Fincher also produces successful series such as “House of Cards” or “Mindhunter“. He is currently working on his next feature film “The Killer“, which marks his big return to the thriller.
See you on February 24 to pay him a vibrant tribute, in clear, live, and exclusively on Canal+.
