The Loves of Anaïs : under the direction of Charline Bourgeois-Tacquet
Charline Bourgeois Tacquet is staging for a second time the actress Anaïs Demoustier. Indeed, they have already worked together in 2018 to the short movie Pauline enslaved, shortlisted for the César 2020 and awarded in numerous international festivals. The director returns, once again accompanied by the actress to present The Loves of Anaïs, his first feature film, selected at Critics’ Week in 2021, in special session of 60e birthday.
An honor therefore for the filmmaker who inspired by his short film continuing the story of Pauline enslaved, thus making the scenario of The Loves of Anaïs continuity. This film is interested in the desire which sets in motion, which moves and which projects towards the other. It is with pleasure that we finally discover this trailer full of vitality. The film will hit theaters September 15 next.
The official synopsis for the film is as follows: Anaïs is thirty years old and not enough money. She has a lover she is no longer sure to love. She meets Daniel, who immediately pleases her. But Daniel lives with Émilie… Who Anaïs also likes. It is the story of a young woman who is agitated. And it is also the story of a great desire.
In The Loves of Anaïs, we follow the life of a intellectual young woman who wants to control things. She analyzes and theorizes about life. Anaïs loves literature and words. But she is overwhelmed by her emotions and destabilized by everything she does not master, especially his romantic feelings.
We find the actress Valeria Bruni-Tedschi, Denis Podalydès but also Grégoire Oestermann. Anaïs is a excessive character, very dynamic that never ceases to be in motion. The director says so herself in the columns of Three colours :
She speaks a mile a hour, lives a mile an hour, is always on the move, and still has a lot of self-mockery.
The film with a luminous aesthetic takes us on this quest and this exploration of feelings. It is above all the story of a meeting that will change Anaïs life, her daily life, her attitude, and even her environment.
