Lost in Frenchlation is teaming up with cinema L’Arlequin for the first time to show you “Une Femme du Monde”!
The bond between mother and son. There’s nothing quite like it, but oh how complicated it can be too! This movie revolves around that relationship and the dilemma of wanting more for your son, than you are able to give. It touches upon social issues without ever taking a moral or political stand – and this creates room for conversation. Join us for that conversation after the film in the presence of the director!
“Marie is a single mother and sex worker. She is an independent and free woman who is content with her job, and never needed anyone’s help. Her love for her son is endless and she wants a better future for him, no matter the cost. But one day, her son is kicked out of school, and to assure his future she must pay for a new education. She suddenly finds herself in urgent need of money. How far will she go to get them? ” – Synopsis
“There are many questions, the film unafraid to touch upon social issues” – Cineuropa
“Astonishing lead actress in a strong film which refuses any moral judgment and miserability” – Le Figaro
