A LADY IN PARIS [Une Estonienne á Paris]

Screen legend Jeanne Moreau plays Frida, a curmudgeonly Estonian ex-pat living in Paris who recently attempted suicide. Anne (Laine Mägi) is the unfortunate woman charged with being her caretaker. Herself an Estonian living abroad, Anne quickly learns that prickly wisecracker Frida doesn't want her help and solely craves the attention of her much younger former lover Stéphane (Patrick Pineau). Estonian filmmaker Ilmar Raag (THE CLASS) gives Moreau her best role in years as the acid- tongued Frida in this elegant dramedy of manners. Official Selection, 2012 Locarno Film Festival.
