France, 2009
Directed by Claire Denis
Starring Isabelle Huppert, Christopher Lambert, Nicolas Duvauchelle, William Nadylam
Approx. 102 min. 35mm.

“One of a handful of great artists working in French cinema today, Claire Denis returns to Africa for the first time since BEAU TRAVAIL for a mesmerizing portrait of civil war, racial tension and one woman’s resistance to change in an unnamed, French-speaking African country. Isabelle Huppert lends her poetic resolve and earthy beauty to Maria, a woman trying to squeeze one last week out of her dilapidated coffee plantation even as her workers drift away and the possibility of violence or death becomes increasingly likely.” – Time Out


“A striking film filled with images that sometimes reveal their full meaning only when their beauty curdles in the chain of signification.”
– Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

“Isabelle Huppert, small and slender, embodies the strength of a fighter. A beautiful, puzzling film.”
– Roger Ebert
