The Five Devils (15)

Parent and Baby Screening

Still from Five Devils

Buried in the French Alps, the past and the future are enchantingly intertwined in this beguiling and sensual family drama starring Adèle Exarchopoulos. 

Eight-year-old Vicky has a mysterious gift: she can recreate any scent she comes across, even that of her beloved mother Joanne. When Vicky’s estranged aunt suddenly returns to their mountain town, the invocation of her fragrance plunges the young girl back in time to unravel the mystery of Joanne’s fiery past with her now sister-in-law.

Directed and written by Léa Mysius, who previously collaborated with Claire Denis as screenwriter for Stars At Noon, and starring Palme d’Or winner Adèle Exarchopoulos (Blue Is The Warmest Colour, Passages) The Five Devils forges a witchy and elemental fable out of small-town racism, homophobia and the ways in which we manage to contain — for a time — memories of the past.

The Five Devils is back in the Barbican Cinemas after previewing as part of Glasgow Film Festival.
