, this time the actress and director dons the guise of the quintessential Parisienne Violette, with all her tics and neuroses, who meets her soulmate, Jean-René, while on vacation in the south of France. Once back home, though, the pair have to deal with Lolo, Violette's brainy, tyrannical son, who has no intention of relinquishing his own control over the family, and the emotions of his darling mother.

"Julie Delpy's latest impressive effort," says Venice Days general delegate Giorgio Gosetti, "packs three fundamental aspects of our programme into a single title: a focus on women's creativity, a passion for comedy and films that combine intelligence and entertainment - a trademark of French cinema, which has always loomed large on Venice Days lineups. We'd like to thank the director, producer, and the international distributor Wild Bunch for choosing Venice Days for this much-anticipated new film."
