LEON LA CAME

Sylvain CHOMET / Nicolas de CRÉCY
Translation: HARA Masato

[France / Japan]

Just as the sun is setting on the family business, Léon, the founder and patriarch of the clan, returns for the first time in decades. From their first encounter, Léon’s timid grandson, Gege, senses something odd about this strange old man who has already reached the advanced age of 100. The story traces the rise and fall of a French cosmetics manufacturer over three generations.
