Returning to Reims

Documentary 1h 23m 2021

Freely adapted from the eponymous 2009 memoir by Didier Eribon, which delineated the author’s return to the hometown he had abandoned thirty years earlier, Returning to Reims tells a personal and political story of the French working class from the beginning of the 1950s to today. Adèle Haenel narrates the story of a prodigal child returning home and a reconciliation that prompts discussion of a mother’s life, marriage, and the opportunities she never had. Director Jean-Gabriel Périot weaves a mosaic of wonderful archival footage through an intimate family history to vividly evoke shifting currents in the political life of the nation.
