Twenty-two years after her debut CHOCOLAT, Claire Denis returns to Africa to craft a visceral and very personal rumination on a society hurtling into chaos. In the midst of a volatile regime change, Maria Vial (the riveting Isabelle Huppert) is fighting to sustain her family’s coffee plantation. With rebels and the army struggling for control, French peacekeeping forces move out, warning the remaining white residents that they’re on their own. But Maria refuses to be driven off the land, even as tragedy looms.
