Diving (Plonger)


Actor-turned-director Mélanie Laurent’s fourth feature is a beautifully mounted film, rich in atmosphere and mood. The film revels in the symbolism of its title, which reflects the story of the characters, forty-something French journalist César (Gilles Lellouche) and his younger partner, Spanish photographer Paz (María Valverde). They dive and sink low, before eventually rising to the surface – both literally and figuratively. A series of stunning locations helps to enhance this moody drama, told through flashback as the couple try to resolve problems in their relationship.
