IFI FRENCH FILM FESTIVAL 2016: CORNICHE KENNEDY

Actress Lola Créton and director Dominique Cabrera will partake in a post-screening Q&A.

It’s summer in picturesque Corniche Kennedy, a well-off neighbourhood in Marseille, where a group of disaffected late teens have adopted the sea cliffs as their haunt. With a clear blue sky backdrop they somersault and dive their way through the summer.

Marco, a slender, matt-skinned figure is a driver for a drug gang, while blond-haired, child-like Mehdi cares for his mother and imprisoned brother. Then, following an initiation rite, Suzanne (the luminous Lola Créton), a middle class girl, comes between them… (Notes by Marie-Pierre Richard)

Director’s note: This is an exhilarating sun-kissed experience, a poetic account set against the ruggedness of nature, in equal measures beautiful and dangerous.

Screening as part of the IFI French Film Festival 2016.
