NAKED NORMANDY / NORMANDIE NUE (N/C 15+)
The eagerly-awaited new ensemble comedy from Philippe Le Guay (The Women on the 6th Floor). It emerges as a warm and wise tale of a proud farming community who must put their grievances aside in order to save their village which is in crisis. Dairy and livestock prices have plummeted due to a flood of imports, and farmers are threatened with foreclosure. Mayor Georges Balbuzard (François Cluzet) 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 (Toby Jones) passes through the village, inadvertently discovering the perfect backdrop for his next shoot. The mayor sets about convincing the townsfolk to participate. The catch? They all have to pose naked!
