FRENCH WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES

Well-structured, entertaining and unpretentious film.

- Cineuropa

Immerse yourself in a tale of obsession, genius, and self-discovery set within the world of elite academia at the École Normale Supérieure in Paris in this 2023 Cannes Film Festival contender.

Rising star Ella Rumpf (Raw) is Marguerite, a brilliant young mathematician who refuses to let her status as the lone woman in her class hinder her pursuit of excellence. However, her world crumbles when a new student discovers a flaw in her thesis, and her supervisor dismisses her for being too emotional. Marguerite must now navigate the real world, unearthing new insights, gaining a fresh lease on life, and even exploring the possibility of romance.

This crowd-pleasing and life-affirming film is unexpectedly joyous in its journey of personal realisation. Rumpf’s tender and warm-hearted performance shines throughout as Marguerite struggles with finding the delicate balance between a rational mind and emotional responses, and giving equal weight to both the ambitions that drive us and the human connections that we cannot live without.
