The Scent of Mandarin (L’odeur de la mandarine) by Gilles Legrand (France, 2015, 110 min.).
Gilles Legrand (Micmacs) directs this lush World War I romance about a cavalry officer (Olivier Gourmet) who lost his leg in battle, and the beautiful and independent war widow (Georgia Scalliet) he hires as his nurse. United by their recent losses, their love of horses, and their shared sense of humor, the two enter a marriage of convenience. But without passion, can it last?
“A very beautiful film which portrays a feministic, loyal and surprising woman ahead of her time.” — Sud Ouest
“An acting duo we love to see evolve: Gourmet, always masterful, and Georgia Scalliet, a sublime revelation.” — A Nous Paris
