Film ”Elles” will be playing in Meeting Point Cinema in Sarajevo from 31 January to 2 February at 8 p.m.
Elles is a 2011 European film, directed and co-written by Polish director Małgorzata Szumowska. It shows an episode in the life of Anne (Juliette Binoche), a journalist in Paris for French Elle who is researching an article about female student prostitution.
Although the young women are not keen on publicity, she persuades two students into talking to her: the provocative Alicja (Joanna Kulig), an ambitious economics student who left Poland to further her education; and the subtle Charlotte (Anaïs Demoustier), enrolled in a Parisian classe préparatoire, determined to leave her modest provincial background behind.
Where Anne is expecting misery and distress, she discovers freedom, pride, and empowerment. As Anne’s professional curiosity in the two women becomes a matter of personal interest, she starts to rediscover her own sexuality.
Elles premiered at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival and first entered general release in France in February 2012.
