Suzanne and Maria are sisters who are extremely 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. Little Charly arrives and the family gets bigger. Years go by, Suzanne meets Julien, a bit of a bad boy, and they fall hopelessly in love… She runs away with him abandoning everyone and leaving everything behind.

Directed by Katell Quillevere (Love Like Poison)
Written by Katell Quillevere and Mariette Desert
Starring Sara Forestier, Adèle Haenel, François Damiens, Paul Hamy, Karim Leklou, Corinne Masiero and Anne Le Ny
Release Date - TBD




"In many ways Suzanne feels like a hybrid of Pialat’s Loulou and À nos amours, with the added tool of an increased emphasis on the power of time, and the effects thereof increasing the scope of the piece...."

"Like Cassavetes, Quillévéré has a great feel for all her characters, at least insofar as to their vocal rhythms and mannerisms. Quillévéré doesn’t share the sort of narrative freeform that Cassavetes is known for as there’s a great deal of structure in its passages. As Suzanne escapes adolescence and becomes a functioning adult, Quillévéré subscribes to a repeated musical pattern that springboard the narrative to another time in her life."
