RFF – ANNETTE
Henry is a provocative stand-up comedian with a fierce sense of humour who falls in love with Ann, a world-famous soprano. In the spotlight, they are the perfect couple, healthy, happy, and glamourous. However, their lives take an unexpected turn when their daughter, Annette, is born. A mysterious girl with an exceptional gift that will turn their lives upside down.
Winner of Best Director at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, visionary director Leos Carax astounds with this glorious rock opera. Featuring music and original story by Ron and Russel Mael, of Sparks, ANNETTE is an exhilarating journey of passion, love, and fame.
‘The most original film of 2021, Annette is a ride like no other, a spellbinding waltz in a storm.’
Ian Freer, Empire Magazine
‘…atmospheric, touching, witty, visually striking and lyrical, strangely original, and it boasts that rarity, a great ending.’
