The Scent of the Mandarine / L’odeur de la mandarine (15)

mandarineIn the final months of the First World War, cavalry officer Charles (Olivier Gourmet) contemplates his future. Angèle (Georgia Scalliet) is his home-care nurse, recently widowed by the continuing conflict. After Angèle accepts Charles’ proposal of marriage without passion, their own battle begins as they come to terms with their fate and how to find some version of mutual happiness. Writer and director Gilles Legrand (You Will Be My Son) brings an intuitive and impassioned vision to this richly drawn study of raw, real emotions and a striking reflection on the Great War.
