Cézanne et moi

117 mins

in French with EN subs

FRA | 2016 | dir. Danièle Thompson, with Guillaume Canet, Guillaume Gallienne, Alice Pol

This 19th century period drama charts the long friendship and eventual fallout between impressionist artist Paul Cézanne (Guillaume Galienne), who was born into a wealthy family but struggled to make a living as a painter, and Emile Zola (Guillaume Canet), who came from a modest family but achieved fame and prosperity as a politically-engaged novelist.

Introduced by Denis Coutagne, founder and President of the Paul Cézanne Society and the Cezanne Center for Research and Documentation.
