The next Michael Mann, Ferrari, will not be released in cinemas in France but on Prime Video

Ferrari, the next film by one of the greatest filmmakers of recent decades (The Last of the Mohicans, Heat, The Solitary, Collateral, Miami Vice, Hacker), will not be released in French cinemas.

Ferrari, the new film by Michael Mann with Adam Driver, which retraces the life of Enzo Ferrari, the driver and founder of the famous racing car brand, has been purchased by Prime Video for its exploitation in France. The surprise is all the greater since the director, even though he thought his film would one day be available on a streaming platform, shot it and thought of it for use in cinemas.

Mann moves with the times?

That said, its acquisition by Prime Video after its filming, and not before, remains a guarantee of great freedom for the director (remember that he also supervised for television in the 80s the cult series Miami Vice), and the certainty that he was able to make his film with normal production constraints and not those imposed by a platform which, very often, are added to those of producers, or even replace them. We comfort each other as best we can.
