Notre Dame

Notre Dame (N/C 15+)

Dir Valérie Donzelli

This light-hearted tale follows an architect in disarray as she works on redesigning the cathedral which was granted unexpected relevance when the beloved Paris icon was devastated by fire in April 2019, just as the director was finalising the project. Valérie Donzelli directs and stars as Maud Crayon, a single mother and struggling architect who wins a competition to redesign the esplanade in front of Notre Dame. What should be a career-defining opportunity, however, only brings more drama when the project becomes a media scandal. Juggling professional challenges with the complications presented by her ex-fiancé, Bacchus (Pierre Deladonchamps), Maud’s quest to find a sense of balance is easier said than done. This is also a love letter to both Paris and one of its most famous landmarks.
