The screenplay, written by the director (who has five shorts under his belt, including Le Sens de l’orientation, winner of the Clermont-Ferrand Special Jury Prize in 2012, and Un Chien de ma chienne, which was presented at Cannes in the 2013 Critics’ Week), follows Diane, a woman who does not hesitate when agreeing to bear her best friends’ child. Of all the times for it to happen, Diane finds herself falling for her electrician’s charms under these, less than ideal, circumstances…

Produced by Jean des Forêts for Petit Film, Diane a les épaules boasts a budget of €2.3 million, including pre-sales to Canal+, an advance on receipts from the CNC, support from the Cofinova 13 Sofica and the Aquitaine-Limousin-Poitou-Charentes and Ile-de-France regions, production funding from the Lot-et-Garonne department as well as funding for the writing process from Angoa. The 36-day shoot will take place in Lot-de-Garonne and the Parisian area. Haut et Court will take on the film’s domestic distribution, with Be For Films handling its international sales.
