Event Information

Jacques Audiard chooses not to show such Parisian clichés as the Eiffel Tower, the Haussmannian buildings or the River Seine. Instead he trains his lens on the brutalist apartment towers of the 13th arrondissement, known as the Chinatown of Paris, where he once lived. With characters inspired by the graphic novels of American artist Adrian Tomine, Audiard sketches young, educated but disillusioned people trying to find their path, and he consciously avoids film clichés of the rich-poor divide in France. Shot during the pandemic, and predominantly in black-and-white, it follows Émilie, Camille, Nora and Amber — four young adults who are friends and sometimes lovers.
