On Thursday April 11th at 7PM, the Cité des Rocheuses is presenting the French movie les Gardiennes by Xavier Beauvois.
Nominated for 4 Césars in 2018
This intimate drama explores the lives of women who are left behind to work a family farm during the Great War. These women, under the deft hand of the family’s matriarch (Nathalie Baye in her best role), must grapple with the workload while the men, including two sons, are off at the front. When a young outsider to the area arrives, her help is initially welcomed as Francine is a good worker, honest and upright. When she falls in love with one of the returned son, the trouble starts. Beauvois’ film is perfect in the creation of the war atmosphere and of rural France.
The Alliance Française is proud to partner with the Cité des Rocheuses for this screening and offer a discount to its member.
