  Best screenplay winner at Cannes
  Comme Une Image released in time for Guy Fawkes
  Lolita (Marilou Berry) is 20 years old, over-weight and under-confident. She is desperate for attention and approval from her father Étienne (Jean-Pierre Bacri) to the point of an obsession that threatens to consume both her and anyone who tries to befriend her.

Etienne is monstrously egocentric and, as a successful novelist surrounded by friends who indulge his unpleasantness and pander to his every whim, he has no discernible need to treat his daughter - or even his beautiful young wife Karine (Virginie Desarnauts) - with either respect or kindness. Into this tangled web over the course of one summer fall Sylvia (Agnès Jaoui), Lolita's singing teacher, her husband Pierre (Laurent Grévill) whose writing is admired by Étienne, and Sébastien (Keine Bouhiza), a young man whom Lolita meets by chance in the street.... resulting in a sophisticated, funny and engaging film from the Oscar-nominated director of Le Gout des Autres (The Taste of Others). Winner of the Best Screenplay award at Cannes, Comme Une Image explores notions of self-image, the misplaced perceptions we have of others, the corrupting influence of fame, and above all the way in which the ties that bind us can so easily work to hold us back. It boasts an ensemble of excellent performances and a superb classical score.
