Music Box Films Has Flashback to Alice Winocour’s “Paris Memories”

Another feature that was in the final five possible contenders for France’s Oscar selection, Alice Winocours fifth feature film, Revoir Paris (Paris Memories) was warmly received at this year’s Directors’ Fortnight screening and will be eventually released stateside. Premiering at this year’s TIFF, Music Box Films’ second French cinema grab in just as many days stars Virginie Efira – a role that was supposedly going to an American actress but the pandemic had other plans for Winocour. We had been tracking the Bataclan, memory project for some time. We were at the world premiere screening (see below).

This is about a survivor of a terrorist attack similar to the one that hit Paris venues, including the Bataclan concert hall and several bistros, in November 2015. Three months after the tragedy, Mia still feels unable to pick her life back up so she sets off to investigate her memories, hoping to find a way back to happiness.
