Are words the only weapons in L’ATELIER / THE WORKSHOP, the new film from Laurent Cantet?
Novelist and writing-workshop teacher Olivia (Marina Foïs) meets a dark adversary in young student Antoine (Matthieu Lucci), who shakes up the class with a massacre-on-a-yacht scenario. Is this a highly imaginative work, or a red-flag warning? L’ATELIER screens twice this week as part of the ongoing AFI Fest.
