Catherine Deneuve plays a woman distraught to learn that her grandson has become a jihadist in Andre Techine's latest, set once again in the director's native southwest France.
Taking place in the Pyrenees over several days of spring 2015 (the film is divided into chapters marking the days), Techiné introduces us to Muriel (Deneuve), who runs a farm and riding school. Muriel is soon visited by her university-age grandson Alex (Klein), apparently headed for work in Canada. In reality, he has other plans.
Alex and his girlfriend Lila (Oulaya Amamra) have espoused the cause of Islamic fundamentalism, and plan to go to Syria to become jihadis. Deneuve is effortlessly compelling as an unflappable embodiment of tough love – and perhaps, symbolically, of enduring traditional French values. Cast: Catherine Deneuve, Kacey Mottet Klein, Oulaya Amamra, Stéphane Bak. “Techiné, an affirmative if qualified humanist, gives us a hopeful ending.” – Bonjour Paris. (Subtitles)
