The follow-up to his Palme d’Or-winning SHOPLIFTERS transports the Japanese auteur’s ongoing engagement with the machinations of family to Paris, where a tempestuous mother-daughter reunion becomes an opportunity to explore questions of love, art, and responsibility.
Septuagenarian screen legend Fabienne is charismatic and fiercely talented. She has always prioritized her work above all else. The publication of Fabienne’s memoir precipitates a visit from her long-estranged daughter Lumir, a screenwriter. When Fabienne’s assistant suddenly resigns, Lumir agrees to take over his position just as Fabienne begins work on a science-fiction film. As the women struggle through confrontations on and off set, the contents of Fabienne’s memoir, along with peculiar parallels between the new film and Fabienne’s life, trigger the re-emergence of long-buried resentments.

Hirokazu Kore-eda, France, Japan, 2019, 106 min. French & English spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Catherine Deneuve, Juliette Binoche, Ethan Hawke, Clémentine Grenier.
