About The Q&A..

Adapting a Prix Goncourt novel: a risky venture
 

Pierre Lemaître’s 2013 Prix Goncourt novel (The Great Swindle) depicts France in the aftermath of the First World War. Scams, revenge and deceit: this cruel tragedy examines who the war benefits.

 
 

France
2017 / Historic, Drama
Running time : 1h57
Director : Albert Dupontel
Starring : Albert Dupontel, Laurent Lafitte, Émilie Dequenne, Nahuel Pérez Biscayart

Albert Dupontel (In Harmony, AF FFF2016; The First, the Last, AF FFF2017) appears in, writes and directs this epic crime drama adapted from the best-selling, award-winning novel by France’s answer to James Ellroy, Pierre Lemaitre.


Synopsis

As star and narrator, Dupontel is Albert Maillard, a rank-and-file French infantryman battling to survive trench warfare as WWI comes to its conclusion. In a horrific final sortie, Maillard is almost buried alive by debris and his comrade Édouard Péricourt (Nahuel Pérez Biscayart, BPM in this year’s Festival) is horribly disfigured after being hit by mortar fire.

Péricourt becomes addicted to morphine during his convalescence and, living behind elaborate masks to hide his disfigurement, concocts a plan with Maillard to sell phony monuments to French towns honouring their dead; an undertaking that will prove as dangerous as it is stunning.
