Alliance Française French Film Festival 2018 presents
NORMANDY NUDE (NORMANDIE NUE)

The eagerly-awaited new comedy from Philippe Le Guay, director of the 2011 French Film Festival favourite The Women on the 6th Floor, Normandy Nude is a warm and wise tale of a proud farming community who must put their grievances aside in order to save their village.

The charming town of Mêle-sur-Sarthe, Normandy, is in crisis. Dairy and livestock prices have plummeted due to a flood of imports, and farmers are threatened with foreclosure. Mayor Georges Balbuzard (François Cluzet, The Intouchables and The Country Doctor) does his best to fight and raise awareness of their plight, but the situation isn’t deemed newsworthy for national media.

Things seem hopeless… until the day famous American photographer Newman (Toby Jones) passes through the village, inadvertently discovering the perfect backdrop for his next shoot. Balbuzard sees a rare opportunity, and sets about convincing the townsfolk – the farmers, the butcher, the pharmacist, some 200 in all – to participate. The catch? They all have to pose naked!

Le Guay’s wonderful ensemble delivers a memorable portrait of community, resilience and ‘fraternité’. Leave your inhibitions at home; you’re assured of returning with a smile.
