In cinemas from June 1st 2018
Ismaël Vuillard makes films. He is in the middle of one about Ivan, an atypical diplomat inspired by his brother. Along with Bloom, his master and father-in-law, Ismaël still mourns the death of Carlotta, twenty years earlier. Yet he has started his life over again with Sylvia. Sylvia is his light. Then Carlotta returns from the dead. Sylvia runs away. Ismaël rejects Carlotta. Driven mad by these ordeals, he abandons the shoot for his family home in Roubaix. There, he lives as a recluse, besieged by his ghosts.
Oscar-winner Marion Cotillard (Ma vie en rose), Mathieu Almaric (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) and Charlotte Gainsbourg (Antichrist) team up for the latest feature from acclaimed writer-director Arnaud Desplechin (A Christmas Tale).
Filmmaker Ismael (Almaric) lives with his wife Sylvia (Gainsbourg) but remains obsessed with his ex-wife (Cotillard), who disappeared 20 years ago and is believed to be dead. When she suddenly reappears, Ismael’s life – already complicated by a film project he is unable to finish – takes a strange turn.
Complex, playful and humorous, Ismael’s Ghosts is a wonderful showcase for some of French cinema’s finest acting talent.
