Merveilles à Montfermeil  (Wonders in the Suburbs)

France  ·  2019  ·  DCP  ·  Color  ·  109'  ·  o.v. French/Arabic/Turkish/Lingala/Soninke/Tamil/German/Czech

Mrs. Joly is the new mayor of Montfermeil. The wonders of her program fall into place, but Joëlle and Kamel, two of her team members, start arguing as the intrigue multiplies.


Part comedy of remarriage, part political fantasy, Wonders in the Suburbs invents a kind of dystopian utopia in which the best intentions yield the most ridiculous results. Balibar proves that films by actors are nearly always singular works: while she leaves many of the best scenes to her stellar cast, everyone onscreen exudes a nervous, libidinous energy reminiscent of her own eccentric spirit.
