FROM THE LAND OF THE MOON

 MAL DE PIERRES

FRANCE, BELGIUM, CANADA • DRAMA • 120 MINS • 2015 • MA 15+
Directed by: NICOLE GARCIA
Starring: Marion Cotillard, Louis Garrel, Alex Brendemühl, Brigitte Roüan
An intoxicating story of romance that will ignite yearning in the coldest of hearts, this passionate tale stars two of the most desirable actors of modern European cinema: Marion Cotillard (Two Days, One Night, 2014) and Louis Garrel (Saint Laurent, AF FFF15).

The always luminous Cotillard plays Gabrielle, a spirited and willful woman who is convinced that true love exists for her, one of wild excitement and unending feverish emotion. Her conservative rural family is at a loss with what to do with her obsessive and lofty ideals. To Gabrielle’s horror, they enlist José, a poor Spanish bricklayer to marry her and turn her into a respectable woman. When she is admitted to a health centre for months of treatment and meets André (Garrel), a lieutenant wounded in the Indochina War, her body and mind erupt with the feelings she has so long craved, and she is determined to preserve this at any cost.

Presented in competition in the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, this sweeping tale explores the very depths of female desire, and ends with a revelation of powerful and enduring love.
