Sidonie in Japan

- OFFICIAL SELECTION: Venice International Film Festival -

Isabelle Huppert delivers a beautifully nuanced performance as Sidonie Perceval, a widowed author who after a long period of inactivity reluctantly travels to Japan to promote a new translation of her debut novel. The majority of her time in Japan is spent with her publisher, Kenzo Mizoguchi, to whom she finds herself increasingly drawn - despite still grieving for her husband. These feelings are further complicated when she is visited by her husband’s ghost. A mesmerising blend of melancholy, romance, self-discovery and humour, Sidonie in Japan will appeal to fans of such films as Lost in Translation and Truly Madly Deeply.
Directed by Élise Girard.
