As a series of kidnappings casts a dark shadow across Paris, Dilili takes it upon herself to get to the bottom of the disappearances.

Orel knows every major figure from the artistic heyday of the Belle Époque – Marie Curie, Picasso, Renoir, Louis Pasteur, Gustave Eiffel and Colette, just to name a few.

IN your hands

Au bout des doigts

Director: Ludovic Bernard
Cast:
Jules Benchetrit, Lamber Wilson, Kristin Scott Thomas, André Marcon
Duration:
105 mins
Date of release:
26/12/2018
Recommended for:
Y11 to Y12, M-rated
Genre:
Drama

Synopsis:

Mathieu (Jules Benchetrit) lives with his mother and siblings in a housing project where peer group pressures have led him into petty theft. When the director of a prestigious music conservatory, Pierre (Lambert Wilson, opening night film of AF FFF2017, The Odyssey; and Raising Colours in this year’s Festival), hears Mathieu playing piano at a railway station (#pianoengare), he is blown away. Pierre decides to use his influence to secure private lessons for Mathieu at the conservatory with the imposing Countess (Kristin Scott Thomas), although with a secret agenda: to enter Mathieu in an international competition.  
“You play because you can’t not play,” says Pierre of his prodigy but social pressures, and the both exciting and daunting prospect of performing piano professionally, causes Mathieu to question himself. Will he play at the international competition or not? Not even Mathieu knows the answer.
