About the Film:

Directed by Ilmar Raag, Belgium, Estonia, 2012,  94 mins. Estonian, French with English subtitles. Hawaii premiere 

Fifty years after Legendary French New Wave muse Jeanne Moreau stole hearts in Truffaut’s Jules and Jim, she steals the show in this elegant comedy from Estonian director Ilmar Raag (The Class). As Frida, a haughty, sharp-tongued elderly Estonian émigré living in Paris, Moreau provides the perfect counterpoint to Anne, a fellow Estonian, who arrives from the old country to be her caregiver. While Frida resists vehemently, Anne slowly manages to break through her tough exterior. An intimate and comedic portrait of two very different women, A Lady in Paris is an insight into the dilemmas families face with aging, and feisty matriarchs.
