The New Girlfriend

Contemporary World Cinema

SIFF Says:

Ever since David's wife died, a mysterious blonde woman has been seen helping around the house in this Hitchcockian psychosexual drama crafted with suspense and emotional intensity by one of France's most esteemed modern directors.

Stranger Says:

If you’ve seen Francois Ozon’s other films (See the Sea, Swimming Pool, 8 Women), you know to expect something uncommon. The New Girlfriend is no exception. It begins with a corpse: Laura has died and left behind her husband David and a baby daughter. Her lifelong best friend, Claire, has promised to support the grieving spouse. Both Claire and David are searching for a way to live without that fundamental relationship in their lives. It’s a tricky story of change, acceptance, and moving on to be your true self. And I love that darling Romain Duris. (GILLIAN ANDERSON)
