Written by the director, the story sees 20-year-old Margaux make the acquaintance of 45-year-old Margaux: they have a lot in common – so much so that it turns out they are one and the same person, at two different ages and stages of their life…

Produced by Julie Salvador for Christmas in July, La Belle et la belle will be co-produced by France 3 Cinéma and Rhône Alpes Cinéma. Having been pre-purchased by Canal+ and Ciné+, the movie is also benefiting from an advance on receipts from the CNC. It will be distributed in theatres and on video in France by Memento Films Distribution, while its international sales will be handled by Indie Sales.
