SeasonVisions of Europe

Estranged siblings are forced to reunite after a family tragedy strikes in Arnaud Desplechin's moving drama. Starring Marion Cotillard and Melvil Poupaud.

For decades, siblings Louis (Poupaud) and Alice (Cotillard) haven’t spoken to one another. They share a burning resentment and refuse to even acknowledge each other’s existence – the reason for this hatred isn’t exactly clear. However, when their parents are hospitalised after a tragic car accident, the siblings find themselves wrestling with the burden they’ve been carrying for so long.

Reminiscent of Bergman, and of Desplechin’s own A Christmas Tale and Kings and Queen, his new vibrant emotional drama is a tale of hate, rivalry, and reconciliation.

"It’s Cotillard canon, and one for the director’s top tier, without doubt." Little White Lies

From 31 Mar - 16 Apr, Visions of Europe returns to celebrate the breadth of European cinema. With a handpicked selection of 24 films from a Macedonian witch tale to a race through Berlin, we take in the best of European film including previews, festival hits and classics returning to the big screen.
