Barbie World: Sophie Fillières’ “Ma vie ma gueule” Ready for 2024

Barbie World: Sophie Fillières’ “Ma vie ma gueule” Ready for 2024

The Cineuropa folks confirm that production on Sophie Fillières‘ seventh feature film is now complete (production took place in Scotland) – which means we’ll be aiming for a 2024 major film festival release. Fillières has been to Berlinale, Locarno and TIFF with her previous features. Among the cast in Ma vie ma gueule we find Agnès Jaoui, Philippe Katerine, Édouard Sulpice, Angelina Woreth, Emmanuel Salinger and filmmaker-actress Valérie Donzelli. Mother to actress Agathe Bonitzer, Fillières’ last film was La belle et la belle which starred Bonitzer, Sandrine Kiberlain and Melvil Poupaud.

Here is the synopsis from the Cineuropa folks:

This revolves around Barberie Bichette who’s also known as Barbie, and much to her dismay, she might have been beautiful, loved, a good mother to her children, a trustworthy colleague and a great lover, but now her life can be sombre, brutal, and often absurd, and it feels very strange for her to be 55 years old (at the very least!). It was fated, inevitable, but what approach should she now take towards herself, towards others, and even towards life…? Barbie finally gets some distance, quite literally, and it’s elsewhere, on the other side of things, in the wilderness of the Scottish Highlands, that her life opens up again, unexpected and full of light…
