Written by Pascal Bonitzer (who began his career as a screenwriter for people like Rivette and Téchiné, and who recently had a share in the writing duties for Gemma Bovery [+see also:

) and Agnès de Sacy (nominated for the César Award for Best Adaptation in 2010 for One for the Road [+see also:

), the story revolves around Nora Sator (Agathe Bonizer), a young, go-getting thirty-year-old. Having just been hired at AB Finance, an M&A (mergers and acquisitions) company, she finds out that her boss, Arnaud Barsac (Lambert Wilson), and her father, Serge (Jean-Pierre Bacri), a researcher who has gone into early retirement, know each other from long ago and that a puzzling hostility arose between them or may still exist. The plot thickens when Barsac invites Nora over to his place, seemingly to help her to process a file. There, she meets Solveig (Isabelle Huppert), Barsac’s wife, who also knew Serge a long time ago, and seems to be brimming with resentment towards him… Nevertheless, Nora starts to be increasingly successful and rises up the company ranks, but not without incurring the animosity of her colleague Xavier (Vincent Lacoste), to whose charms Nora’s sister Maya is by no means immune… Family stories will become inextricably intertwined with stories of love and professional twists and turns, building up to a conclusion that will see several dreams shattered.

Produced by Saïd Ben Saïd for SBS Productions, Tout de suite maintenant is co-produced by France 2 Cinéma and Luxembourgish outfit Samsa Film. Having been pre-purchased by Ciné+ and OCS, the film is also being backed by the Film Fund Luxembourg. The shoot will take place in Luxembourg and Belgium, with Julien Hirsch (winner of the César Award in his category in 2007 for Lady Chatterley [+see also:
