The Green Planet

La belle verte

Upon visiting Paris, a superior being from a utopian planet is shocked to learn of humans’ consumerist ways and sets out to do a green awakening. A wild and highly imaginative comedy, which prompts us to reconsider our way of life in this world, redefining the importance of the connection with nature. Multi-talented director, actress, writer, and musician Coline Serreau unravels the style that established her as one of the most emblematic agents of French Cinema while introducing two major film stars: Vincent Lindon, Head of the Jury in the latest Cannes Film Festival, and ravishing Marion Cotillard in one of her first on-screen roles.
