Written by the director and adapted from an eponymous play by Marguerite Duras dating back to 1968 (which the writer brought to the big screen herself in 1977 in a work intitled Baxter, Vera Baxter), the story plunges us into the 1960s to fix its gaze on Suzanna, an uptight 40-year-old woman who’s old before her time and trapped in an upper class marriage. She will find herself having to choose between a life as a wife and a mother, governed by conventions, or the more carefree existence her young lover embodies.

It’s worth noting that Benoît Jacquot worked as an assistant director on three films directed by Marguerite Duras herself at the beginning of the 1970s (Nathalie Granger, Woman of the Ganges and India Song), and that many of the latter’s works have previously been adapted for the big screen, including Memoir of War [+leggi anche:

Produced by Kristina Larsen on behalf of Les Films du Lendemain, Suzanna Andler has been pre-purchased by Ciné+ and enjoys the support of France’s Région Sud (the Provence-Alps-Cote d’Azur region, where the film will be shot in its entirety, with Christophe Beaucarne helming cinematography) and the SOFICA company Cofinova. Les Films du Losange will head up French distribution and international sales.

For the record, Les Films du Lendemain previously teamed up with Benoît Jacquot to produce Farewell, My Queen, Diary of a Chambermaid and Casanova, Last Love. The Parisian outfit is currently working towards the release of Jean-Paul Salomé’s Mama Weed next spring (read our article – with Isabelle Huppert at the head of the cast, due to be released in France on 25 March 2020).
