Rie Rasmussen To Screen First Feature Film Human Zoo at Cannes

>> Former Gucci face Rie Rasmussen left fashion a few years ago to fully immerse herself in the film world — and judging by the evasive tangent she went on when asked in April if she was planning on returning, it doesn't sound like planning on coming back.  She most recently starred as the title character in Luc Besson's Angel-A, and now she's joining a number of other models displaying their work at Cannes Film Festival this year.

Rie's own debut feature film, Human Zoo, which she produced, wrote, directed, edited, and stars in is screening at Cannes May 19.  The film, which has been described as "Bonnie and Clyde in Kosovo," was panned by Variety when it screened at the Berlin Film Festival in February, but the Hollywood Reporter was more encouraging, deeming that Rie "holds the screen credibly" and "has much to offer as a filmmaker although it's too uneven to be called a success."
