Featuring beautiful people enjoying fine wine and fresh food on the picturesque French countryside, MA BELLE, MY BEAUTY is a breezy, contemporary love story that centers around the surprise reunion of polyamorous ex-lovers. Bertie, a talented singer from New Orleans, is dissatisfied with her new life in the South of France. Having moved with her husband Fred to tour with their jazz band, Bertie’s drive to perform dwindles as she feels increasingly isolated. In an attempt to ignite that missing spark, Fred secretly invites Lane—Bertie’s ex-girlfriend—to their vineyard villa. At one point in their lives, Fred loved Bertie, Lane loved Bertie, and living together in harmony seemed easy. But two years after the dust has settled, simply picking up where they left off isn’t an option. Under the direction of Marion Hill, the camera is never exploitative, capturing the characters’ rivalries, flirtation, and sensual intimacy with a refreshing and grounded eye. Boasting sun-drenched cinematography and an enchanting score, the film celebrates the beauty of self-love, open communication, and the messy nature of romance. (In English and French with subtitles) — D.O.
