Fresh from her triumphant, Golden Globe-winning turn in Elle, Isabelle Huppert takes the stage in Bavo Defurne’s (North Sea Texas) sweet, wistful, candy-coloured love story Souvenir. Once a chanteuse and finalist in a Eurovision-style singing contest, Liliane has drifted into obscurity, working in a pâté factory where she is horrified to be recognised by talented young boxer Jean (Kévin Azaïs). Besotted with Liliane and inspiring her passion, he persuades her to come out of retirement and return to the spotlight once more. With an original soundtrack by Pink Martini, Souvenir is a charming and uplifting love story.
