Ismael’s Ghosts

Ismael’s Ghosts Image FINAL Play Button

Just as the disheveled and alcoholic filmmaker Ismael (Mathieu Almaric) embarks on a difficult new film project, his life is sent into a tailspin. His wife (Marion Cotillard), presumed dead for 20 years, come crashing back into his life creating chaos in his work and his current romantic relationship with the starry-eyed astronomer Sylvia (Charlotte Gainsbourg). This portrait of a troubled character deals with espionage, melodrama, and hauntings from the past. Ismael’s Ghosts premiered at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. Introduction by Harry Chotiner
