Directed by Cédric Klapisch (France and Belgium, 2022, 117 min.). French with English subtitles.
With an ideal relationship and promising career as a ballet dancer, Elise thinks she has the perfect life. But everything crumbles when she suffers an injury that may prevent her from dancing again. The path to physical and emotional recovery leads Elise away from Paris to picturesque Brittany, where new friends, a new love, and the freedom of contemporary dance help her reconnect with her father—and, most importantly, herself. In her acting debut, professional ballerina Marion Barbeau of the Paris Opera delivers a remarkable performance worthy of comparison to Moira Shearer in The Red Shoes. This soaring tale of resilience and self-discovery was nominated for nine César Awards, including for Best Film.
Co-presented with the French Library of Boston.
