Gabrielle lives in a small village in the south of France, at a time when her dream of true love is considered scandalous, and even insane. Against her will, Gabrielle’s parents marry her to José, an honest and loving Spanish worker who they think will make a respectable woman of her. When she is sent away to the Alps to treat her kidney stones, André, an injured veteran of the Indochina war, rekindles the passion buried inside of her.
The film is based on Milena Agus’ novel of the same name. Cotillard (also in It’s Only the End of the World) gives a luminous performance as Gabrielle. She gives a voice to the torments of a repressed love life aptly caught in the metaphor of the film’s original title The Stone Sickness. Louis Garrel (also in Two Friends and Planetarium) excels his charms as dashing war veteran André.
Director Nicole Garcia (Charlie Says) delivers a subtle but powerful romantic character study of a woman’s liberation.
The Festival has the pleasure of presenting From the Land of the Moon as an exclusive preview before the national New Zealand release.
