Thanks to Nadine for the heads up. In time for Cannes EuropaCorp released Teaser Posters of Guillaume Canet’s new movie ‘Les Petits Mouchoirs‘ starring among others Marion Cotillard. See a photo of it at Cannes here. This reminded me about the long overdue plot synopsis and description of Marion’s character:
Every year, Max, a successful restaurant owner, and Véro, his eco-friendly wife invite a merry group of friends to their beautiful beach house to celebrate Antoine’s birthday and kick-start the vacation. But, this year, before they all leave Paris, their buddy Ludo is hurt in a serious accident, which sets off a dramatic chain of reactions and emotional responses. The eagerly anticipated vacation leads each of the protagonists to raise the little veils that for years they have draped over what bothers and upsets them. Pretences become increasingly hard to keep up. Until the moment when the truth finally catches up with them all…
In an extended French synopsis Marion’s character Marie is described as a “liberated single”, who fiercely proclaims her independency and her thirst for new experiences. Guillaume Canet said in an interview with Le Figaro that Marion plays an ethnologist who spends the larger part of the year in Amazonia where she studies the Kayapo Indians. A way of running away, actually. It’s difficult for her to be involved in her own life. To take the plunge.
