FRA | 2017 | dir. Robert Guédiguian, with Ariane Ascaride, Jean-Pierre Darroussin, Gérard Meylan

By a little bay near Marseille lies a picturesque villa owned by an old man. His three children have gathered by his side for his last days. It’s time for them to weigh up what they have inherited of their father’s ideals and the community spirit he created in this magical place. The arrival, at a nearby cove, of a group of boat people will throw these moments of reflection into turmoil. Guédiguian offers a deeply humanist and melancholic tale supported by wonderful actors.

Preceded by A vil prix, a short film as part of the Mobile Film Festival
