The Dazzled

Les Eblouis

(N/C 12+)

Dir: Sarah Suco

Actress-turned-director Sarah Suco’s debut feature is a mesmerising slow burn set in an insular Catholic community. When promising 12-year-old acrobat Camille (promising newcomer Céleste Brunnquell) performs in a sketch that seems to make light of prayer, the church’s leader – known only as “The Shepherd” (Jean-Pierre Darroussin) – asks her parents to withdraw her from circus training. Her mother (Camille Cottin) has become emotionally dependent on the parish, while her father (Éric Caravaca) seems brainwashed. It’s clear that Camille and her younger brothers
must come into their own. Suco, who co-wrote the script with Nicolas Silhol (Corporate), grew up in just such a community.
