"Between Two Worlds"
France tv distribution announces the selection of "Between Two Worlds" (original title: "Ouistreham") by Emmanuel Carrère at the Directors' Fortnight, a section held in parallel to the Cannes Film Festival. The film has already been sold to several territories by France tv distribution and will be released in theaters during the first half of 2022.
A co-production by Curiosa Films and Cinéfrance Studios, "Between Two Worlds" was adapted from a book by Florence Aubenas titled "Le Quai de Ouistreham" and starred Juliette Binoche. The film will be distributed in France by Memento Distribution and it has already been acquired by Cineart (Benelux), Frenetic Films AG (Switzerland), Karma Films (Spain), Teodora Film (Italy), Bestfilm.eu OÜ (Baltics), Nachshon Films & Red Cape (Israel), Providence Filmes (Latin America), AV-JET International Media Co. (Taiwan) and Madman (Australia/New-Zealand).
"We're very proud of this selection and are honored to be the international distributor of 'Between Two Worlds', alongside Curiosa Films and Cinéfrance Studios. As always, we are pursuing our role in exporting French films and are keeping our promise of supplying impactful stories and high-quality films to worldwide viewers", states Catherine Bernard, France tv distribution's COO.
The film talks about Marianne Winckler (played by Juliette Binoche), a well-known author who goes to live in northern France to research for her new book on the subject of job insecurity. Without revealing her true identity, she gets hired as a cleaner, working with a group of other women. In this new role, she experiences financial instability and social invisibility first-hand. But she also discovers mutual assistance and solidarity, strong bonds shared by these behind-the-scenes working women.
