Cannes Queer Palm Nominee
Eight-year-old Vicky (newcomer Sally Dramé) has a mysterious gift: she can recreate any scent she comes across, even that of her beloved mother Joanne (Palme d’Or winner Adèle Exarchopoulos). When Vicky’s estranged aunt suddenly returns to their mountain town, the invocation of her fragrance plunges the young girl back in time to unravel the mystery of Joanne’s fiery past with her now sister-in-law. The acclaimed breakout from filmmaker Léa Mysius (screenwriter for Claire Denis and Jacques Audiard), The Five Devils forges a witchy and wildly imaginative fable out of family secrets and queer romance.
“The Five Devils offers audiences an enrapturing queer romance that blends genres and bleeds with an intriguing specificity that sets it apart from the usual genre fare — if you choose to go on the journey with it.”—Inverse
“With a killer soundtrack, formal confidence, and strong performances, the film invites the audience to embrace the narrative’s chewiness.”–Autostraddle
