2013 Cannes Film Festival Predictions: Katell Quillévéré’s Suzanne

#41. Katell Quillévéré’s Suzanne

Gist: Suzanne and Maria are sisters who are extremely, indeed intensely close. They have a happy childhood despite the absence of their mother, who passed away when they were still little girls. Nicolas, their at times clumsy but loving father runs the household the very best he can, until the day that Suzanne gets pregnant…

Prediction: Un Certain Regard. Can’t say I was whip-lashed by Katell Quillévéré’s debut film – a difficult, almost faith-based drama and exploration-of-self entitled Poison violent, which was unveiled in the 2010 edition of Directors’ Fortnight and would go onto collect the prestigious year-end Prix Jean-Vigo. Croisette onlookers will be curious as to Quillévéré delivers another layered portrait – with shooting having began in October, we can say that this is ready for show and it helps that Sara Forestier is paired with Adèle Haenel with François Damiens (who might be at the fest with several items) completing the casting.
