À propos de Joan

We were anticipating a 2021 drop for Laurent Larivière‘s sophomore project (initially going by the title of Joan Verra) as this project was completed back in October of 2020. Starring Isabelle Huppert, Lars Eidinger, Swann Arlaud, Freya Mavor, Florence Loiret-Caille and Dimitri Dore, Larivière’s À propos de Joan comes a good seven years after his debut I Am a Soldier premiered in the Un Certain Regard in Cannes. Lariviere re-teams with scribe Francois Decodts and the project is lensed by Celine Bozon.

Gist: Joan Verra finds herself overwhelmed when a figure from her past suddenly turns up, forcing her to retreat to the countryside where she experiences fragmented recollection of her romantic encounters. She’s joined on this journey by her son Nathan, who has just arrived from Montreal.

Release Date/Prediction: This was selected for a 2022 Berlinale Special Gala screening.
