IN THE NAME OF THE LAND AU NOM DE LA TERRE
AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE

DRAMA / FRANCE / 2019 / 103 MINS / CTC

Few could have predicted that a modest rural drama about succession and resilience would become one of the most popular French films of 2019, but its underdog status is just one of the reasons why the remarkable and heartfelt In the Name of the Land became such a box office phenomenon and national talking-point.

The debut feature of journalist Édouard Bergeon, this film is a deeply personal one, inspired by his own childhood and dedicated to his parents. It tells the story of Pierre (portrayed in a superb, career-best performance by Guillaume Canet), who returns from Wyoming to the Mayenne district of France in the late 70’s to marry his sweetheart and take over his imperious father’s farm. The couple have two children, and for several years, life is good. But the business is soon placed under enormous pressure, and what was once satisfying begins to take an insidious toll on the family.

This beautifully acted, humane and empathetic film drew critical plaudits and countrywide attention upon release; through wordof-mouth and social media it quickly achieved more than 2 million admissions, making it one of France’s top five films of the year. Rich in themes that are bound to strike a deep chord with Australian audiences, this is must-see cinema that leaves an indelible mark.

French with English subtitles.
