Robert Guédiguian / France-Italy / Drama / Subtitles / 107 minutes / 2019 / Colour

“Mathilda (Anaïs Demoustier) works as a retail assistant while partner Nicolas (Robinson Stévenin) is an Uber taxi driver. They are broke and struggle to make ends meet. On the birth of their daughter Gloria, grandmother Sylvie (Ariane Ascaride) sends a letter to Daniel (Gérard Meylan), the biological grandfather, currently serving a term in prison. When Daniel returns to Marseilles on his release, Mathilda is not interested in meeting her ex-convict father. Winner of Best Actress Award at Venice (Ariane Ascaride), veteran director, Robert Guédiguian (Marius and Jeannette; The House by the Sea) delivers a tense contemporary melodrama with unique emotional richness.” (Marie-Pierre Richard)

“I have always thought that cinema should move us… In short, we need both comedies and tragedies to continue to question our lifestyles… And we must continue to question ourselves more than ever in these troubled times so that we do not succumb to the illusion that there is something natural about the societies we live in.” Robert Guédiguian

”Robert Guédiguian reunites his regular repertory for a heartfelt, gently scathing take on the gig economy and the generational divide.” Variety
