Director: Arnaud Desplechin

108 mins, France, 2022, Digital, Subtitled

Louis (Melvil Poupaud), a poet/teacher, lives an isolated life in the Pyrenees with wife Faunia (Golshifteh Farahani) following the tragic death of his son Jacob. Louis’s estranged sister Alice (Marion Cotillard) is a famous actress currently on stage in an adaptation of Joyce’s The Dead. As children, Alice and Louis loved one another – but now they are enemies. When their parents have a car accident and are hospitalised, the siblings are forced to meet after more than twenty years. Reminiscent of Bergman, and of Desplechin’s own A Christmas Tale and Kings and Queen, his new vibrant emotional drama is a tale of hate, rivalry, and reconciliation.
