Synopsis

Isabelle Huppert stars in director Benoît Jacquot's sumptuously beautiful
portrait of a woman finding her destiny.
Adapted from the novel by prize-winning author Pascal Quignard (All
The World's Mornings), Villa Amalia is the story of Ann, a musician,
whose life is turned upside down by a kiss. When she sees Thomas kissing
another woman, Ann makes a clean break, leaving him and everything
else far behind her. Suddenly unsure of everything that seemed
so certain, Ann knows only that she must change her life and become
someone else to find herself. With her music and the friendship of
Georges, who pops out of her distant past, she sets off on a journey
that will take her to an island where the Villa Amalia stands.
BAFTA award-winner, Cannes Best Actress and César Award-winner
