Directed by Emmanuel Carrère and featuring actress Juliette Binoche (The Good Wife), OUISTREHAM is an adaptation of French journalist Florence Aubenas’ best-selling novel, Le Quai de Ouistreham. After premiering in Montreal at the Cinemania Festival last November, OUISTREHAM will open in cinemas across the province on March 25, 2022.

Marianne Winckler, a well-known writer, is writing a book on precarious work. She settled near Caen and, without revealing her identity, joined a team of housekeepers. Confronted with economic fragility and social invisibility, she also discovers the mutual aid and solidarity that unite these shadow workers.

After reading the novel Le Quai de Ouistreham by Florence Aubenas, actress Juliette Binoche wanted at all costs to see this book adapted to the big screen and take on the portrayal of the main character. She managed to convince Florence Aubenas to give up the rights to her novel so that it could be brought to the screen, under the gaze of the author and director Emmanuel Carrère. In order to be as realistic as possible, the film crew made the decision to shoot with non-professional actresses. The result is a poignant social film that focuses on human relationships and mutual aid between women.
