COME WHAT MAY
En mai, fais ce qu'il te plaît

Written and directed by Christian Carion
Starring August Diehl, Oliver Gourmet, Mathilde Seigner, Matthew Rhys

May 1940: German forces roll into France. Led by their reluctant mayor (Olivier Gourmet), the inhabitants of a small Northern French village are forced to flee along with millions of others throughout the country. The villagers take with them a German child whose father (August Diehl) opposed the Nazi regime and has been jailed for lying about his nationality. The father escapes into the fog of war in search of his son, accompanied by a Scottish soldier (Matthew Rhys,) who is trying to get back to England. With an original score by Oscar-winning composer Ennio Morricone and lush cinematography by Pierre Cottereau, COME WHAT MAY is based on many testimonies as well as director Carion’s own mother’s story, and celebrates everyday acts of resilience and heroism ordinary people carry out in the face of life-altering historical events.
