WATCH THE TRAILER

A fascinating reflection on working class life in France over the past 70 years, Jean-Gabriel Périot’s documentary has been adapted from Didier Eribon’s 2009 memoir. He presents a mosaic of archive footage with one family history to vividly evoke shifting currents in the political life of the nation. Eribon’s book told of his return to the hometown he had abandoned 30 years earlier. 

Adèle Haenel narrates the story of a prodigal child returning home and a reconciliation that prompts discussion of a mother’s life, marriage and the opportunities she never had.

Director: Jean-Gabriel Périot
Narrator: Adèle Haenel
