Writer-director Danièle Thompson brings to life the turbulent friendship between two 19th-century French cultural giants, Paul Cézanne (Guillaume Gallienne) and Émile Zola (Guillaume Canet). The film follows the two from their schoolboy days in Aix-en-Provence as they developed a mutual love for art and beautiful women. The pair quickly became part of the art scene in Montmartre and Batignolles when they move to Paris. Tensions rise as Émile’s prospects soar while Paul remains mired in disappointments. It’s a story of bromance and rivalry, and includes cameos by Manet, Renoir, and Pissaro.
