A Season in France Film Poster


Une Saison en France An African high school teacher flees his war-torn country for France, where he falls in love with a Frenchwoman who offers a roof for him and his family. Cannes Jury Prize winner Mahamat-Saleh Haroun (A Screaming Man, Grisgris) takes a dark yet compassionate look at illegal immigrants struggling in the lower depths of Paris. Far from a picture-postcard journey the film is something closer to a season in hell - especially for a grieving father whose fate depends on the mercy of the authorities. Yet as tough as it is, France is also warm and subtly heartbreaking, offering a moving vision of life for those stuck in legal and emotional limbo. The subject matter has a topical urgency. Haroun was born in Chad but has lived in France for over 30 years. Premiered in the last year’s London Film Festival. Cast Eriq Ebouaney, Sandrine Bonnaire, Aalayna Lys.
