Academy Award nominated French writer-director Danièle Thompson’s CÉZANNE ET MOI, a riveting 19th-century period drama starring Guillaume Canet and Guillaume Gallienne as two of French culture’s legends, the novelist Émile Zola and post-impressionist painter Paul Cézanne.

CÉZANNE ET MOI chronicles the decade-long friendship between Cézanne, who was born into a wealthy family but struggled to make a living as a painter, and Zola, who came from a poor background but achieved notoriety as a novelist.

The film traces the parallel paths of their lives and careers from Aix-en-Provence to Paris, while exploring their fears and ambitions.
