THE DAY I SAW YOUR HEART
Dir. Jennifer Devoldere (98min, France, 2011)
French with English Subtitles
An assured debut from writer/director Jennifer Devoldere, this film offers an honest, light-hearted, take on a dysfunctional Jewish family in Paris. While patriarch Eli expects a baby with his new young wife, he attempts to reconcile his tepid relationship with his adult daughter (Mélanie Laurent, Le Rafle and Inglorious Bastards), by reaching out to her ex-boyfriends and volunteering for her new art project.
Winner - Best Director (Jennifer Devoldere) and Best Actress (Mélanie Laurent), Newport Beach Film Festival
