Naissance des Pieuvres
Céline Sciamma’s debut feature explores the sexual awakenings and complex friendships of a trio of teenagers.
Dir Céline Sciamma
With Pauline Acquart, Louise Blachère, Adèle Haenel
Marie yearns for a spot on the sophisticated synchronised swimming team, mainly so she can be close to the alluring team captain Floriane, leaving her best friend Anne behind. A great indicator of things to come, Sciamma’s debut is a provocative, bold and deeply stylish examination of burgeoning sexual desire. The film also marks Sciamma’s first collaboration with Portrait of a Lady on Fire’s Adèle Haenel.
