Louloute takes us to the end of the 80s in Normandy. Between the cows, the Club Do ‘and the big woolen sweaters, Louloute dreams, falls in love and quarrels with those close to her. As the family farm goes into debt, her life will change forever.
Expected for August 18 in theaters, Louloute presents its first bucolic and exotic images. The story, set in 1988, will make us relive carefree times through the eyes of a whimsical and dreamy girl.
The young girl is played by Alice Henri. This mischievous child will give her mother a hard time, camped by the eccentric Laure Calamy. The actress, who recently won a Caesar for Antoinette in the Cévennes, already camped an outdated mother in Ava, with the revelation Noée Abita. As for the father, he is camped by Bruno Clairefond.
