Presentation

Presented by Marie Labory (ARTE Journal)
In presence of Muriel Cravatte, director of photography.

After performing as Oblomov over a hundred times at the Comédie-Française, Guillaume Gallienne directed a film adaptation of Goncharov's masterpiece. Using extracts from other films, he plays with the symbolism of the place, at once a bedroom, a theatre, and a cinema, to give flesh to a deep reflection about the essence of our lives, consumed equally by fire or ice. Delighting in his own imagination, he leads his comrades of the Comédie-Française in a dreamlike and enchanting show.

Muriel Cravatte
A graduate of INSAS (Belgium) in 1992, Muriel Cravatte worked for a time as an assistant operator, then she contributed to the development of various shows, as a musician and video director. She then becomes director of photography, mainly in feature-length fiction. She is also a director.
