We invite you to discover the French drama comedy La Fracture (The Divide, 98 min), directed by Catherine Corsini in 2021. This film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2021 and was nominated six times at the César awards in 2022 (the French actress Aïssatou Diallo Sagna won the Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role).

Synopsis: “Two women on the verge of a breakup, in a hospital, are further stressed on the night of a big demonstration (the Yellow Vests Protests in 2018) by the overwhelmed staff and by angry, injured protestors who land up besieging the building”.
