We are happy to announce that the French comedy My Donkey, my Lover, and I (Antoinette dans les Cévennes) is part of the Mill Valley Film Festival (MVFF43) program. The movie just got released in France and is already a success.
Antoinette (Laure Calamy), a school teacher, is looking forward to her long-planned summer holidays with her secret lover Vladimir (Benjamin Laverhne), the father of one of her pupils.
When learning that Vladimir cannot come because his wife organized a surprise trekking holiday in the Cévennes National Park with their daughter and a donkey to carry their load, Antoinette decides to follow their track, by herself, with Patrick, a protective donkey.
Beyond the funny aspect of the movie written and directed by Caroline Vignal, this film shows how you can do psychoanalysis with a donkey.
Note: This movie follows Robert Stevenson‘s footsteps in Cévennes, which inspired him the famous book Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes, published in 1879.
Avec Laure Calamy (Call my agent) and Benjamin Laverhne (amazing in Scapin the Schemer) from Comédie Française.
Selection Officielle au Festival de Cannes 2020
The French movie My Donkey, My Lover, and I will be available in streaming for the whole time of the festival. Beware the movie is geo-blocked to California state.
