Romain Gary is one of the most famous French novelists and the only writer to have twice won the Goncourt Prize for French literature. Barbier’s biopic offers a sweeping chronicle of his life, from his childhood in Poland and adolescence in Nice, to his years as a student in Paris and his tough training as a pilot during World War II.
At the film’s heart is Gary’s complex relationship with his mother (played by the mesmerizing, award-winning actress Charlotte Gainsbourg), who drove him to greatness against all odds in a Europe torn by anti-Semitism and war.
Director Barbier describes his film as a “moving story, which concerns us and haunts us all; how dreams guide us or how they deceive us. But also why you should never give up.”
