For her fifth feature film, Donzelli reconnects with comedy. The caustic, clown-like humor thrives in the Parisian environment, which is sometimes turgid, sometimes greedy, and often ridiculous − much to the viewer’s enjoyment! This event will be preceded by a Women of Paris Notre Dame tour.
Maud is an architect and a mother. Due to a misunderstanding, she wins the competition to refurbish the parvis of Notre-Dame. Torn between these responsibilities and love issues, she will go through an emotional storm. – Plot
With her latest feature, Gallic filmmaker Valérie Donzelli proves that fiction might be stranger than truth – but only just. The director was putting the finishing touches on her latest whimsical exploration of Parisian life when she learned of the fire engulfing the very public monument this past April. But no matter, as reality’s harsh incursions only added to the film’s storybook quality. – Variety
