Our Opening Night film is a lush romantic masterpiece from acclaimed French director Céline Sciamma (Water Lilies MGFF09, Tomboy, Girlhood) that will engross you from its opening moments to its final breathtaking sequence.
Marianne (Noémie Merlant), a young artist, has been commissioned to paint the wedding portrait of Héloïse (BPM star Adèle Haenel), a reluctant soon-to-be bride who refuses to sit for her portrait and must be studied in secret.
To fall in love is to study someone deeply and Marianne’s attraction to her subject builds with every brushstroke and stolen glance. As they stroll along the cliff tops of Brittany, an intimacy and attraction swiftly develops that cannot be denied, even as circumstances conspire to keep them apart.
