Directed by Danièle Thompson

Set in 19th century France, the film traces the unique friendship between painter Paul Cézanne and novelist Émile Zola. Directed by Academy Award® nominated filmmaker Danièle Thompson (Avenue Montaigne), CÉZANNE ET MOI is both an artistic journey, and a story of friendship.

Starring César Award® winners Guillaume Canet (Tell No One) and Guillaume Gallienne (Me, Myself and Mum), CÉZANNE ET MOI captures the evolution of two singular visionaries. From the beginning of Cézanne and Zola’s friendship as schoolboys to their future as revolutionary artists, the riveting drama follows both Zola, a fatherless child from a poor family, and Cézanne, a wealthy child with a happier home life, who as young men both wish for fame and women. The historically authentic biopic begins in 1888 at the height of Zola’s career, and the peak of Cézanne’s struggle. With a friendship destined to fail, the two artists slowly grow apart as Zola becomes a renowned wealthy novelist while society rejects Cézanne’s style and paintings.
