Juliette Binoche is a French Journalist in 'Between Two Worlds' Trailer
"Make the invisible visible." Madman Films in Australia has released their official trailer for Between Two Worlds, a French drama from writer / filmmaker Emmanuel Carrère. This premiered last year at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival in the Directors' Fortnight section, and is opening sometime later this year. It is based on French journalist Florence Aubenas's bestselling non-fiction work Le Quai de Ouistreham, investigating rising precarity in French society through her experiences in the northern port city of Caen. The original French title is Ouistreham in reference to this location. Juliette Binoche stars as Winckler, who goes to live in northern France to research for her new book on the subject of job insecurity by working in various low end cleaning jobs. The cast includes a group of authentic unknown actors, including Hélène Lambert, Louise Pociecka, Steve Papagiannis, & Aude Ruyter. The film looks a bit like a Ken Loach drama but made in France, a social realist look at the honest struggles of low income workers. Definitely worth a watch.
Here's the new Australian trailer (+ poster) for Emmanuel Carrère's Between Two Worlds, on YouTube:
Marianne Winckler (Juliette Binoche), a well-known author, goes to live in northern France to research for her new book on the subject of job insecurity. Without revealing her true identity, she gets hired as a cleaner, working with a group of other women. In this new role, she experiences financial instability and social invisibility first-hand. But she also discovers mutual assistance and solidarity, strong bonds shared by these behind-the-scenes working women. Between Two Worlds, also known as Ouistreham (referencing Le Quai de Ouistreham) in French, is directed by French writer / filmmaker Emmanuel Carrère, making his second feature after The Moustache previously, as well as lots of writing gigs. The screenplay is written by Emmanuel Carrère and Hélène Devynck, adapted from Florence Aubenas' novel. This initially premiered at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival last year, playing in the Directors' Fortnight sidebar. It already opened in France earlier this year, and opens in Australia soon. No US release is set yet - stay tuned. Who's interested?
