Planetarium Becomes The Barlow Sisters

By July 21, 2015Nat-news

 
Natalie will soon be in front of the camera again for Rebecca Zlotowski’s “Les soeurs Barlow” (The Barlow Sisters), which was previously titled Planetarium…is it just me or do the names of Natalie’s films change a hell of a lot more than most? This is Natalie’s first French film and is co-starring Lily Rose Depp, who plays Natalie’s younger sister. Allocine has the full synopsis, which sounds tantalizingly strange.

Laura (Natalie Portman) and Kate Barlow (Lily Rose Depp) are two young sisters spiritualists who end their European tour in Paris in the late 30. After running, face the rivalry of new practices, they face Andre Korben , a powerful movie producer. As visionary as disputed is who redeemed the greatest French film studio, and is based on American techniques by which his company does not sink completely into crisis. To test his skepticism, and playfulness, Korben is a private meeting with the girls: it’s a total shock to him. Upset, he offers them a contract year home for ambitious experiments … He says that cinema must innovate to survive and surprise: it can make the first authentic film ghosts. But Laura does not take long to understand that Korben has more secret reasons for having hired. Together they end up forming a strange family links to more troubles …

    It may be partly inspired by the story of the Fox sisters?

    Changing the time in the late thirties, of course…

    I can’t follow (as usual “ADD” 🙂 )
    Is this film going to be in the language French or in English and dubbed or what.
    With those different names…
    Leon is a French movie to…
    And I guess Lily Rose Depp is Johnny Depp’s girl. The trade stays in the family then…
    Anyhow, I’m looking forward to it aswel. No more prejudice on movie themes or titles because I have made that mistake before.

    I had troubles understanding the translation (honestly, the original french synopsis isn’t that well written either) so I made another translation. It can probably still be improved but it’s easier to understand:

    “Laura (Natalie Portman) and Kate Barlow (Lily Rose Depp) are two young sisters spiritualists who end their European tour in Paris in the late 30s.
