Scarlet (L’envol) by Pietro Marcello

The French drama film Scarlet (L’envol) by Pietro Marcello will have its world premiere as the opening night film of the 54th edition of Directors’ Fortnight on May 18, 2022. Scarlet stars Raphaël Thiery (Raphaël), Juliette Jouan (Juliette), Louis Garrel (Jean), and Noémie Lvovsky (Adeline).

In northern France, Juliette grows up alone with her father, Raphaël, a veteran of the First World War. Passionate about singing and music, the lonely young girl meets a magician one summer who promises that scarlet sails will one day take her away from her village. Juliette never stops believing in the prophecy.

Freely inspired by the tale “The Scarlet Sails” by Aleksandr Grin, Pietro Marcello’s film blends music, history and folklore, bordering on magical realism.
