Written by Yaël Langmann (Le brio [+see also:

) and Aurélie Saada, the story revolves around 78-year-old Rose who has just lost her beloved husband. When her sorrow gives way to a deep thirst for life – which helps her to realise that there’s still time for her to redefine herself as a woman - the family’s equilibrium is totally destabilised...

Rose is produced by Priscilla Bertin and Judith Nora on behalf of Silex Films and by Elsa Rodde on behalf of Germaine Films, in co-production with France 3 Cinéma and Apollo (who have also acquired French distribution and international sales rights for the movie). The feature film further enjoys the support of the Ile de France region and of the SOFICA companies Cinécap and Indéfilms, and has also been pre-purchased by France 3, Canal+ and Ciné+.
