About the Event
Juliette Binoche (How to Be a Good Wife, AF FFF20) and Vincent Lindon (At War, AF FFF19) have never acted together until now and there's fireworks!
It's the new romantic drama from celebrated auteur Claire Denis (Let the Sunshine In, AF FFF18), and its a blazing story about a passionate, complicated woman caught between two very different men.
Public radio presenter Sara (Binoche) and Jean (Lindon) are in love, and have been living together for a decade. When they first met, Sara was in a relationship with François (Grégoire Colin) while Jean, a pro rugby star, was married with a son. Their relationship has been relatively secure, even surviving a stint in prison by Jean for shady business dealings. One day, seemingly out of the blue, François returns to Paris and contacts Jean, suggesting he come work for him; he’s starting an agency for sports stars and wants Jean’s expertise in identifying talent. When Sara first sees Francois again - in the distance, across a carpark - she’s overcome with emotion. Soon, things rapidly spiral out of control…
Packed with erotic frisson and a series of dramatic, emotionally-charged encounters, the superbly acted Fire delivers two powerhouse actors working at the very top of their game.
