AroView: A French drama par excellence starring Virginie Efira in a Cesar-winning performance, and directed by Alice Winocour (co-writer of ‘Mustang’) with the intuition and integrity that made that one a feminist classic.
Developed in the wake of the 2015 Bataclan terrorist attacks in Paris, her powerful new drama neither flinches from nor wallows in the post-traumatic stress of Efira’s character, but instead finds poignant consolation in the unexpected human connections found in the wake of tragedy. (French title: Revoir Paris)
“It’s a sensitive, careful film with real emotional intelligence, but no less gripping for swerving dramatic fireworks in favour of quieter, more observational moments.” ~Phil de Semlyen, Time Out
“Despite the tragedy, Revoir Paris is a hopeful film about the healing power of human connection and mutual comfort. It’s the kind of movie that lingers in the mind long after the credits roll.” ~RogerEbert.com
