Ali suddenly finds himself with a five year old child on his hands. Sam is his son, but he hardly knows him. Homeless, penniless and friendless, Ali takes refuge with his sister in Antibes. There things improve immediately. She puts them up in her garage, she takes the child under her wing and the weather is glorious. Ali first runs into Stephanie during a night club brawl. He drives her home and leaves her his phone number. He is poor, she is beautiful and self-assured. Stephanie trains killer whales at Marineland. When a performance ends in tragedy, a call in the night again brings them together. When Ali sees her next, his princess is confined to a wheel chair: she has lost her legs and quite a few illusions.
He simply helps her, with no compassion or pity. And she comes alive again.
A triumph from Audiard and a Cotillard masterclass, this bruising, tender melodrama lingers long in the memory.
The screening on Thursday 9th May will be introduced by Dominique Pluskwa, The Brewery’s adult education French language tutor, and will be followed by a short and informal Q&A for members of the audience who wish to participate (no obligation).
- Directed By:
- Jacques Audiard,
- Armand Verdure, Matthias Schoenaerts, Marion Cotillard,
