Description

French writer Romain Gary lived an extraordinary life—decorated military officer and two-time winner of the Prix Goncourt (France’s highest literary award). In this sensational adaptation of his beloved memoir, Charlotte Gainsbourg (Melancholia) and Pierre Niney (Yves Saint Laurent) star in this story of a man driven to greatness while in search of maternal approval. Director Eric Barbier offers a sweeping narrative that takes us from Gary’s childhood in Poland, to his years as a student in Paris, and his training as a pilot during World War II. “A film that lives up to the original masterpiece novel.” (Marianne)
