Gloria Mundi

  •   Robert Guédiguian
  •   France
  •   International Competition

A working-class family in Marseille struggles to make ends meet in this tense intergenerational drama, and winner of the Best Actress Award at Venice (Ariane Ascaride). New parents Mathilda and Nicolas welcome infant daughter Gloria. But when Mathilda’s ex-con father re-enters the picture to meet his grandchild, his arrival—and a subsequent tragedy—creates upheaval for the clan. With a naturalistic, low-key style, this socially-minded family portrait deftly renders the precariousness of life on the margins.

“A heartfelt, gently scathing take on the gig economy and the generational divide.”
