“A crackling and offbeat comedy that transforms sadness into shared joy”. Cineuropa
Maud Crayon (Valérie Donzelli), a single mother and struggling architect, wins a competition to redesign the esplanade in front of Notre-Dame. What should be a career-defining opportunity, however, only brings more drama when the project becomes a media scandal. Juggling professional challenges with the complications presented by her ex-fiancé, Bacchus (Pierre Deladonchamps), Maud’s quest to find a sense of balance is easier said than done.
Shot just before the shocking fire at Notre-Dame, this light-hearted comedy is also a love letter both to Paris and one of its most famous landmarks.
This screening will take place at Instituto Cervantes:
