Cézanne and I
(Cézanne et moi)
In French with Finnish subtitles
For audiences aged 7 and above
|What appears to be one of the greatest bromances in cultural history has finally been brought to the screen in Cezanne and I (Cezanne et moi), writer-director Daniele Thompson's flowery, fictionalized account of the affectionate if caustic friendship between the titular French painter and his lifelong bestie, the writer Emile Zola.
Starring Guillaume Gallienne (Me, Myself and Mum) as Cezanne and Guillaume Canet (Tell No One) as Zola - both Guillaumes decked out in constantly evolving facial hair that merits its own above-the-line credit - this easily digestible though very kitschy tale of creation and destitution, prosperity and rivalry gets points for taking such liberties with two 19th century masters, who come to life here in some surprising ways.
