Ten projects have been selected in the fourth 2021 session of the CNC’s advance on receipts committee, which has been reformed to include three categories instead of two. The first remains dedicated to feature debuts, but the second is now divided into one commission focused on second and third films, and another centred on fourth films and beyond. 

Among the happy selected few of the brand new third committee is Anatomie d’une chute, which will be the fourth feature film  by Justine Triet after Age of Panic [+see also:

), the script centres on a woman who is under investigation regarding the murder of her husband, found dead. During the investigation, the detective initially believes the death to be the result of an accident or suicide, before turning to the theory of murder. It turns out that a key witness happens to be the couple’s blind son, who is facing a moral dilemma… The production is handled by Les Films de Pierre and Les Films Pelléas.
