Starring François Cluzet, Toby Jones, François-Xavier Demaison, Arthur Dupont, Grégory Gadebois, Vincent Regan, Colin Bates, Philippe Rebbot, Patrick D'assumçao and Julie-Anne Roth. Directed by Philippe Le Guay.

The charming town of Mêle-sur-Sarthe, Normandy, is in crisis. Dairy and livestock prices have plummeted due to a food of imports, and farmers are threatened with foreclosure. Mayor Georges Balbuzard does his best to fight and raise awareness of their plight, but the situation isn’t deemed newsworthy for national media.

Things seem hopeless... until the day famous American photographer Newman passes through the village, inadvertently discovering the perfect backdrop for his next shoot. Balbuzard sees a rare opportunity, and sets about convincing the townsfolk – the farmers, the butcher, the pharmacist, some 200 in all – to participate. The catch? They all have to pose naked.

AURORE (2018)
Starring Agnès Jaoui, Thibault De Montalembert, Pascale Arbillot, Sarah Suco, Lou Roy-Lecollinet, Philippe Rebbot, Laure Calamy, Marc Citti and Samir Guesmi. Directed by Blandine Lenoir.

Fifty-year-old Aurore Tabort, separated from her husband and newly unemployed, discovers she is to become a grandmother. She feels as if her own life has come to a standstill, and is slowly being pushed away to the fringes of society. But after bumping into the great love of her youth, Totoche, something changes... Aurore wonders if it might still be possible to embark on something new.

But one morning Vincent experiences a powerful déjà-vu when he meets the gaze of a grocery store clerk, Rosalie Blum. Intrigued by this mysterious woman, he begins following her...
