ROMANTIC COMEDY / FRANCE / 2022 / 117 MIN / M

Rise is an inspirational film that goes behind the scenes of professional dance, providing a glimpse into a young woman’s life as she strives to reconnect with her father, her art, and herself. These are moments of insecurity and revelation we can all relate to.

Élise (Marion Barbeau) is a talented ballet dancer whose life is turned upside down, first by an injury and then by catching her boyfriend cheating with her understudy. On a path to physical and emotional recovery, she travels from Paris to Brittany, where she embraces the artistic freedom of contemporary dance. On this journey of self-discovery, she finds friendship and new ways to reinvent herself.

The latest project of talented director, Cédric Klapisch (Someone Somewhere, AF FFF20; Back to Burgundy, AF FFF18) is a beautiful tale of strength and resilience. Rise combines emerging talent with picturesque locations to tell a fundamentally human story about finding one’s place and purpose in community. By taking audiences on a magical journey into the sublime Opéra de Paris’ backstage, Klapisch explores the passionate souls of dancers in an engrossing and sincere tale of transformation.
