Arnaud Desplechin | 2017 | France | Cert 15 | 135 mins | French with English language subtitles

At Vue Cinema Hull: BUY TICKETS

A filmmaker’s life is disrupted when his wife unexpectedly returns after a twenty year absence, just as he is about to embark on the shoot of a new film.

ISMAEL’S GHOSTS | Arnaud Desplechin | 2017 | France | Cert 15 | 135 mins | French with English language subtitles


Oscar-winner Marion Cotillard, Mathieu Almaric and Charlotte Gainsbourg team up for the latest feature from acclaimed writer-director Arnaud Desplechin. Filmmaker Ismael lives with his wife Sylvia (Gainsbourg) but remains obsessed with his ex-wife, who disappeared 20 years ago and is believed to be dead. When she suddenly reappears, Ismael’s life – already complicated by a film project he is unable to finish – takes a strange turn. Complex, playful and humorous, Ismael’s Ghosts is a wonderful showcase for some of French cinema’s finest acting talent.

Starring Mathieu Amalric, Marion Cotillard, Charlotte Gainsbourg
