He is one of the 32 new faces selected by the Committee of the Academy of Caesars. Sofiane Bennacer, one of the main roles in the film “Les Amandiers” by Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi, currently in theaters, was chosen last Thursday by French cinema. However, the meeting was stormy. The eighteen casting directors present argued over his case. For several months, rumors of sexual assault hovered around the young man. Ignoring doubts, they accepted his candidacy at the risk of appearing reckless. This distinction is not small, it opens up many opportunities, in particular this year the shooting of a short film with star director Audrey Diwanand offers a possible nomination to the Caesars.
