Director: Valeria Bruni Tedeschi

France • 2007 • 107 minutes

Valeria Bruni Tedeschi made her mark as a director with her debut feature Il est plus facile pour un chameau (FFF 2003). Here she collaborates once again with writing partner Noemie Lvovsky to tell the story of Marcelline, an actress whose neurotic and fragile state of mind is complicated by visions of her dead father (played by Maurice Garrel), her first lover, and the character she is currently rehearsing in Turgenev’s A Month in the Country. Her frantic desire for a child leads her to consider the play’s tempestuous director (Mathieu Amalric) and her young co-star (Louis Garrel) as possible fathers. Although she might be eclipsed at the moment by her famous sister (Carla Bruni), Bruni Tedeschi has proven herself as one of France’s most well respected actresses, writers and directors.
