A film by Céline Sciamma
Oppressed by her
family setting, dead-end school prospects and the boys law in the neighborhood,
Marieme starts a new life after meeting a group of 3 free-spirited girls. She
changes her name, her dress code, and quits school to be accepted in the gang, hoping
that this will be a way to freedom.
A film by Lucas Belvaux
Clement, a young Parisian philosophy professor is transferred to Arras for a year. Far from Paris and its nightlife, he doesn’t quite know what to do with his free time. Then he meets Jennifer, a pretty hairdresser who becomes his lover. While Clement’s life revolves around Kant and Proust, Jennifer’s is punctuated with chick lit, tabloids and karaoke evenings with her girlfriends. Free love and free hearts, they could live a beautiful romance together, but is it enough to bridge the social gaping and cultural divide between them?
