Marion Cotillard and Mona Achache present Little Girl Blue
Mona Achache discovers his mother’s past in Little Girl Blue, presented in a special screening. After his death she left letters and recordings, precious material from which the director draws to give body to the deceased. Halfway between documentary and fiction, Little Girl Blue tries to unravel the secrets left after the disappearance of Mona Achache’s mother. For this resurrection exercise, the director goes beyond reality and invites the actors to play the characters who have been important in her mother’s life. The latter is embodied by Marion Cotillard who, immediately after shooting, delighted in talking about this “creative and breathtaking project” in the newspaper Le Figaro.
French-Moroccan actress and director, she made her name through short films and documentaries, before directing her first feature film in 2009, Le Hérissonwith Josiane Balasko. In this 76th edition, the Cannes Film Festival explore documentaries in all their forms. Here are all the photos of the director and Marion Cotillard accompanying the film towards the official screening.
