The Animal Kingdom

[Le règne animal], directed by Thomas Cailley, Francja 2023, 130'

The Animal Kingdom, the new film directed by Thomas Cailley, has won five Cesars, the most important French film awards. Acclaimed by the reviewers, the French blockbuster tells the story of a family trying to find its way in the world of a genetic epidemic.

This highly original project opened the prestigious Un Certain Regard competition at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival and has been recognised by numerous international festivals including London, Busan, Palm Springs, Sitges and the Warsaw Film Festival. Starring Romain Duris, Adèle Exarchopoulos and Paul Kircher.

In the near future, an epidemic of mysterious genetic mutations is sweeping through the human population. As a result, some people are becoming more and more animal-like in appearance and behaviour. However, these hybrids with superhuman abilities are considered a threat and thus isolated in special centres. One of the affected is Lena, who is married to François (Romain Duris). Upon hearing that a convoy has crashed in a wild part of the forest and the hybrids have escaped, the man, accompanied by his 16-year-old son Emil, sets out on a desperate search for his partner. This will challenge both François’ relationship with his child and the three of them as a family. Ahead of them is a true emotional earthquake, which will put everyone to the test.
