Cézanne Et Moi traces the parallel paths of post-impressionist painter Paul Cézanne and novelist Émile Zola, from school pals in Aix-en-Provence to working artists in Paris, while exploring their fears and ambitions. Through a slew of flashbacks, we see the two grow up to share a mutual love of art and beautiful women. Zola, who was fatherless and poor, dreams of becoming a writer and eventually joins the very bourgeoisie he mocked in his youth. Meanwhile Cézanne, who came from a wealthy background, wound up rejecting society to focus entirely on his work. Directed by Danièle Thompson, Cezanne et Moi is at once a richly evocative look at two extraordinary artists and a “demystifying portrait of the rowdy late-19th-century Parisian art world where famous painters and poets mingled and jostled for position at dinner parties and art openings filled with shoptalk, backbiting and intrigue. Guillaume Gallienne gives an electrifying portrait of Cézanne as a scruffy, driven wild man who even as his career seems stalled, declares, ‘I’ll never stop painting; I’ll die painting.'” –NY Times
