A strong, international cast comes together for a new film by Guy Ritchie, shot halfway between Paris's right and left bank. The concept? To pay homage to a certain avant-garde spirit linked to Paris, its freedom and its creativity, a cultural geography that was captured so well by the nouvelle vague cinema. It's a story of chances and the funny little tricks that fate plays on you - the story of a karmic bond that seems to exist between certain people.

On one side, Rami Malek, on the other, Catherine Deneuve. They cross paths - amused and complicit - over the Pont Alexandre, across different time periods. She, in her key roles, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg by Jacques Demy, Indochine by Régis Wargnier and Place Vendôme by Nicole Garcia and he, in the role of a multi-talented artist.
Two characters, two continents, two generations. Linked by the same love of French cinema and culture.
