Down By Love Trailer

"Do you believe in destiny? An official trailer has premiered for Pierre Godeau's Down By Love, a French film starring actress Adele Exarchopoulos made famous by starring in Blue is the Warmest Color (she won the Most Promising Actress Cesar Award in 2014). Exarchopoulos plays a inmate at a prison, and the story profiles her and the prison warden falling in love. It's obviously a trick topic and apparently it's based on a true story, which makes this even more interesting to see turned into a movie. Guillaume Gallienne stars with Stéphanie Cléau. This trailer has English subtitles to help understand the story. Take a look.

Here's the first potentially-NSFW trailer for Pierre Godeau's Down By Love, from YouTube (via TFS):

Down By Love Poster

Based on a true story, the impossible love between a prison director and one of its female inmates. A man, a woman. A prison director, his inmate. An impossible love, a true story. Down By Love, or Éperdument originally in France, is both written and directed by French filmmaker Pierre Godeau, of the film Juliette previously. Based on the book by Florent Gonçalves & Catherine Siguret. The film already opened in France in March earlier this year, and doesn't have a US release date set yet. It's still seeking US distribution, which may be tough because it deals with a touchy topic that will be hard to market in the US. Anyone interested?

If it was set in a Scottish prison, I don't think he'd ever be tempted.

Kind of messed up premise, but it looks like it is being handled with measured sensibility.

There's a French film, Kings & Queen (Rois et reine,2004) which, in the midst of bigger narrative, describes love between broken man and schizophrenic young lady in some prison-like mental institution. That one was quite good and it does look better than this one but that also doesn't say enough. The leading actress is nice, although unrealistically beautiful for prison as already stated here. So, for the sake of fun and European cinema, why not?
