After an unforgettable hike with a donkey in “Antoinette in the Cévennes”, Laure Calamy will soon be a prostitute and mother of a teenager in “Une femme du monde”. A role that promises to be intense and of which we discover the first images in the trailer.
Laure Calamy continues
Getting a Caesar is as much recognition as it is a launching pad. Because with the statuette comes a renewal of notoriety and a precious exhibition. Thus Laure Calamy, rewarded in 2021 for her role in Antoinette in the Cévennes, will logically be showing in several films of which it will be the main attraction. We wait Full time, scheduled for March 2022, and for which she obtained an interpretation prize at the 2021 Venice Film Festival (in the Orizzonti category). Also, The Origin of Evil by Sébastien Marnier, who will arrive in theaters in November 2022. But in the immediate future, we will see her in the role of an established and independent prostitute in A woman of the world by Cécile Ducrocq, December 8, 2021 At the movie theater.
A new intense and generous role
The images of the film trailer (at the head of the article) don’t beat around the bush. From the outset, Marie (Laure Calamy) gives her profession to a banking advisor. He’s embarrassed, she isn’t at all. It is because Marie has been practicing this profession for a long time, independently, she has her clients, her routine. It is a normal job, which others do not necessarily perceive. She has a son Julien, gifted for cooking and who would like to become a chef but does not make the effort to do so. Marie wishes to enroll her in a prestigious private school, but the entrance ticket is expensive. Marie will therefore, the time to collect the necessary sum, be employed in a “striptease” club near the border with Germany …
Family drama, modern and committed portrait of a woman, a story of dignity … A woman of the world seems, in view of these first images, to offer a total role to Laure Calamy, where the intensity is both physical and psychological. Directed by Cécile Ducrocq, of which it is the first feature film, A woman of the world also offers an important role to Nissim Renard who plays Julien, the son of Marie.
