Jeune femme

by Léonor Serraille Special Screenings

Paula causes trouble wherever she turns up. The 31-year-old just cut herself on her ex-boyfriend’s locked apartment door. With no money and no job she finds herself on the streets of Paris, Persian cat in arms. Rejected by her mother, Paula sets off on an odyssey through a city to which she has only just returned after a trip abroad. A friendly stranger, a completely unfitting job in a department store and a smart girl help her get back on her feet again. Life, however, has already planned the next surprise. Léonor Seraille’s directorial debut sees the main character’s unstoppable energy superbly expressed by Laetitia Dosch. This gem of a dramedy received the Caméra d’Or at Cannes.
