Brazil | 2022 | 107 min. | François Ozon

Opens September 2, 2022

A successful director meets and falls in love with a young man he offers to help break into the world of cinema.

Opening this year’s Berlin Film Festival to critical acclaim, Francois Ozon’s retelling of Fassbinder’s classic, The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant is now Peter von Kant, starring Denis Menochet in the lead role and Isabelle Adjani as his muse Sidonie. Peter Von Kant is a successful, famous director who lives with his assistant Karl, whom he likes to mistreat and humiliate. Through the great actress Sidonie, he meets and falls in love with Amir, a handsome young man of modest means who he offers to help break into cinema. Ozon's Peter von Kant is both a tribute to the original and something completely his own.
