Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
This is a beautiful film by Laurent Achard, and it got an award at the Rotterdam International Film Festival.
It is mainly about a family in the countryside of France. There are two sisters, Francoise and Sonia, who both have (had) an incestuous relationship; Sonia with her uncle Maurice, and Francoise with Bernard, son of Maurice. They also have a little brother, Julien. Sonia, who is the oldest of the two, visits her parents with her present boyfriend Patrick. The factory where Bernard works, and is the property of uncle Maurice, holds a swimming contest, which is won by Karim, who is an Arab immigrant, who is illegally in France, and is a friend of the family. Off course, things go wrong between some of them because of the past...
Overall this was a very nice French drama, I rated it 9/10!
