Starring: Charlotte Gainsbourg
40-year-old Suzanna (Gainsbourg), views a Riviera beach house for her family’s summer vacation. This day, this break in her routine, in this new house, will mark a turning point in her life. Based on the Marguerite Duras play of the same name, SUZANNA ANDLER is the portrait of a woman trapped in a bourgeois marriage to a wealthy, unfaithful businessman in the 1960s. She must choose between her conventional destiny as a wife and mother, and her freedom, embodied by her young lover.
“Gainsbourg is fully in command of her character’s pains and enigmas — blithely chic in a black YSL mini-dress and fur wrap, cigarette ever present… An intimate walk along that precipice of desire or nothingness.” – The Los Angeles Times
