From The Land of the Moon (Mal De Pierres)
Marion Cotillard stars as Gabrielle in this melodrama about an idealistic woman trapped in a marriage of convenience in post-World War II France
In From The Land Of The Moon Gabrielle (Marion Cotillard) lives with her family in the post-war French countryside. When her love for a married teacher is not reciprocated, Gabrielle reacts in a manner that worries her loved ones, and she is married off to a poor Spanish bricklayer. But Gabrielle is too passionate to be trapped in a loveless marriage, and soon her desire for sexual fulfilment is re-ignited by returning war hero Lt. Andre (Louis Garrel).
Language: French, Spanish, German with English subtitles.
“Cotillard’s performance is luminous throughout, enriching the wilful heroine with the depth of a single obsession.”
- Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter
