Directed by Claire Denis, 1988, PG-13, 1h45, France-West Germany-Cameroon
With Isaach De Bankolé, Giulia Boschi, François Cluzet, Cécile Ducasse

Presented with the support of Sézane.

In 1950s French Cameroon, curious eight-year-old France (Ducasse) spends her days amidst the paradise of her family’s estate along with her always traveling father Marc (Cluzet), her bored, frustrated mother Aimée (Boschi), and Protée (De Bankolé), the noble, intelligent “houseboy.” Everyday routine changes when a plane makes an emergency landing nearby, bringing a motley collection of characters to the house and causing the heavenly façade of the household to unravel.
