Arnaud des Pallières

Born in Paris in 1961, Arnaud des Pallières started drama classes at 16 years old. After studying literature, he directed several drama plays. As a cinema student, he invited Gilles Deleuze to present a lecture and shot Gilles Deleuze: What is the Creative Act (1988). He directed a dozen of short movies including La Mémoire d’un Ange (1989), Before After (1993), The Red Things (1994). His first feature film, Drancy Avenir (1996), is an investigation on the extermination of Jews in Paris and its suburbs, carried out nowadays. He then directed two documentaries for television: Is Dead (Incomplete Portrait of Gertrud Stein) (1999), a free portrait of Gertrude Stain based on her autobiographic texts, then Disneyland, My Old Native Land (2001), a nightmarish journey in the famous park. His second feature, Adieu (2004), starring Michael Lonsdale, Aurore Clément, Olivier Gourmet, paints the portrait of an unwelcoming France, indifferent to the fate of illegal immigrants sent back to their home countries. Parc (2008), with Sergi Lopez and Jean- Marc Barr, adapted from a novel of John Cheever, was selected to compete at the Venice Mostra. Diane Wellington (2010), which screened in Venice, and American Dust (2011), chosen to open the International Film Festival of Marseille, were born from American archive images. Age of Uprising: The Legend of Michael Kohlhaas, with Mads Mikkelsen, Bruno Ganz and Denis Lavant, adapted from a novel by German author Heinrich von Kleist, was selected in the Cannes 2013 Official Competition. Orphan, with Adèle Haenel, Adèle Exarchopoulos, Gemma Arterton and Solène Rigot is his fifth feature.
Arnaud des Pallières writes and edits the films he directs.

Synopsis

Four moments in the lives of four female characters.
A little girl from the countryside, playing a game of hide and seek that turns to tragedy.
A teenager, caught in an endless succession of runaways, men and mishaps, because anything is better than her desolate family home.
A young woman who moves to Paris and has a brush with disaster.
The grown-up at last, an accomplished woman, who thought she was safe from her own past.
Gradually, these characters come together to form a single heroine.
