Élise (Marion Barbeau) is a talented ballet dancer whose life is turned upside down, first by an injury and then by catching her boyfriend cheating with her understudy. On a path to physical and emotional recovery, she travels from Paris to Brittany, where she embraces the artistic freedom of contemporary dance. On this journey of self-discovery, she finds friendship and new ways to reinvent herself.
The latest project of talented director, Cédric Klapisch (Someone Somewhere AF FFF20, Back to Burgundy AF FFF18), is a beautiful tale of strength and resilience. Rise combines emerging talent with picturesque locations to tell a fundamentally human story about finding one’s place and purpose in community. By taking audiences on a magical journey into the sublime Opéra de Paris’ backstage, Klapisch explores the passionate souls of dancers in an engrossing and sincere tale of transformation.
