SNOWS OF KILIMANJARO

DIRECTOR: Robert Guédiguian - FRANCE

“Inspired not by the Hemingway novel but by a Victor Hugo poem, Guédiguian returns to the working-class Marseille that inspired his Marius and Jeannette. Brimming with passion, humanity, and political conviction, the film asks what it means to be socialist in the 21st century. Standing shoulder-to-shoulder with laid-off dock comrades, union rep Michel finds himself jobless but faces the future with dogged optimism. Then, for their anniversary, he and his wife are presented with cash and tickets for an African dream holiday. But a shocking event leaves the couple traumatized and causes Michel to ponder the nature of solidarity and the fact that justice for some can entail deprivation for others. Guédiguian revives the regionalist pride of Marcel Pagnol and the socialist humanism of Jean Renoir, qualities that shine.”—London Film Festival (107 mins.)

Selected Filmography: Last Summer (81), Marius and Jeannette (97), The Town is Quiet (00), My Father is an Engineer (04), Army of Crime (09).
