88 mins

FRA | 2020 | dir. Valérie Donzelli with Valérie Donzelli, Pierre Deladonchamps, Thomas Scimeca, Bouli Lanners, Virginie Ledoyen, Isabelle Candelier

“A crackling and offbeat comedy that transforms sadness into shared joy”. Cineuropa

Maud Crayon (Valérie Donzelli), a single mother and struggling architect, wins a competition to redesign the esplanade in front of Notre Dame. What should be a career-defining opportunity, however, only brings more drama when the project becomes a media scandal. Juggling professional challenges with the complications presented by her ex-fiancé, Bacchus (Pierre Deladonchamps), Maud’s quest to find a sense of balance is easier said than done. Shot just before the Notre-Dame shocking blaze, this light-hearted comedy is also a love letter to both Paris and one of its most famous landmarks.
