Dir. Fanny Molins, 2022, France, 77 min, DCP, color
In French with English subtitles
2022 ACID Cannes Film Festival
In her first feature, director Fanny Molins offers a raw, yet spirited portrait of owner Nathalie and the beloved Atlantic Bar that’s on the verge of closure.
The Atlantic Bar is a special place where regulars spend their time talking, singing, eating and dreaming. When faced with the end of the bar and the world as they know it, patrons are confronted with the loss of community.
“A magnificent documentary for those who love human stories.” – L’Humanité
“Fanny Molins films with great accuracy the microsociety of a café in Arles.” – Le Monde
