Éternité 1

One film we expected might show up at the Cannes Film Festival line-up was the latest feature from Norwegian Wood and I Come with the Rain director Tran Anh Hung. However, Éternité (aka Eternity) will bow this fall instead, set for an early September release in France. Although we’re still waiting on U.S. distribution, the first trailer has now arrived.

An adaptation of Alice Ferney‘s novella L’Elegance des veuves, the cast includes Mélanie Laurent, Bérénice Béjo, Jérémie Renier, Audrey Tautou, and Pierre Deladonchamps. The period drama follows three generations of women during wartime. The first trailer, while subtitle-free, looks to be as gorgeous as the director’s previous work. Check it out below, along with the first poster.


Éternité opens on September 7th, 2016 in France and is awaiting U.S. distribution.
