35 Shots of Rum
Directed by Claire Denis • 2008 • France
Starring Alex Descas, Mati Diop, Grégoire Colin
An achingly poignant family drama from Claire Denis, the renowned director of BEAU TRAVAIL, the sublime 35 SHOTS OF RUM is the moving story of a father and daughter whose close-knit, tender relationship is disrupted by a handsome young suitor. Sumptuously filmed by cinematographer Agnès Godard and featuring an evocative score by Tindersticks, 35 SHOTS OF RUM pays homage to the cinema of Yasujiro Ozu while finding a rhythm that’s entirely its own, casting a lovely spell unlike any other movie you’ve seen.
