Non-Fiction (Doubles vies) 15

BUY TICKETS 8pm Monday 25 November

DIRECTOR Olivier Assayas
CAST Guillaume Canet, Juliette Binoche, Vincent Macaigne, Christa Théret

This very French film, set amidst the bohemian intelligentsia of the Parisian publishing world, is a wry, slyly seductive tale of sex, lies and literature.

The latest film from Olivier Assayas (Summer Hours, Something in the Air) is set in the world of publishing and is almost the epitome of a French movie! Two intertwined couples drink wine, argue about literature, debate the state of things and fall into bed with each other. An entertaining dialogue-driven comedy of modern manners.
(2018 France 107 mins Subtitled)

Writer-director Olivier Assayas (Personal Shopper) is far from heavy-handed in charting the lives of a pair of couples who lead seemingly happy marriages on the surface but harbor depths and secrets of their own … Non-Fiction is pure, straight-faced French witticism from start to finish; so much that you might find yourself craving the continued company of these characters through an episodic series. Bonus: Non-Fiction has the peerless Juliette Binoche, ironically playing the role of a middlebrow TV actor. Tomris Laffly, Film Journal
