Le beau monde (High Society) by Julie Lopes Curval
Synopsis : Twenty-year-old Alice lives in Bayeux. She works with wool, creates dyes, makes clothing.

Alice leaves everything behind to go and live in Paris. There she encounters Antoine, Agnès’s son. They fall in love.

La Cour de Babel (School of Bsabel) by Julie Bertuccelli
They’ve just arrived in France. They are Irish, Serbian, Brazilian, Tunisian, Chinese, and Senegalese. During a year, Julie Bertuccelli filmed the exchanges, conflicts, and joys of this group of students aged between 11 and 15 years old who all attend the same class to learn French. In this small theater of the world, the innocence, energy, and contradictions of these adolescents are expressed. Driven by the same desire to change their lives, these students challenge many established ideas about youth and integration, and give us hope for the future.
Tout est pardonné (All is forgiven) by Mia Hansen-Løve
Victor lives in Vienna with Annette and their little daugher, Pamela. It’s spring and Victor, who avoids working, spends his days, and sometimes his nights, outside. Deeply in love with him, Annette trusts him to get himself together as soon as they get back to Paris. But in France, Victor picks up his bad habits again. After a violent argument, he moves in with a junkie with whom he’s fallen in love. Annette leaves Victor and disappears with Pamela. Eleven years later, Pamela is seventeen years old. She lives in Paris, at her mother’s place. One day, she learns that her father is also living in the city. She decides to see him again.
