Overview

Noted French filmmaker Josée Dayan directs this portrait of a celebrated love affair between legendary novelist, scriptwriter, essaying, film director and television personality Marguerite Duras and Yann Andrea, a man who is almost half Duras's age. The film opens with Andrea (Aymeric Demarigny), an ardent fan who wrote her numerous letters, showing up at her doorstep of her apartment in Brittany. Though Duras (played by French film icon Jeanne Moreau) at the age of sixty five was not looking for a relationship, Andrea soon pushes his way into her life, typing her manuscripts for her and generally becoming her constant companion. Together, they would spend every moment drinking, smoking, and having passionate conversations about everything under the sun. As portrayed in the film, Duras was both a woman of great charm and generosity, but also a profoundly moody character given to great egotism. In spite of this, Andrea and Duras's relationship lasted for sixteen years until her death in 1996. This film was screened at the 2001 Toronto Film Festival.
