About the Film:

For a Woman / Pour une femme

2013, France
in French with English subtitles

Runtime: 1 hour, 40 minutes

Directed by Diane Kurys

Two brothers fall for the same woman in Diane Kurys’s historical melodrama set in both 1950s and 1980s Lyon. When a writer (noted French actress Sylvie Testud) decides to write a screenplay about her parents, she discovers a photograph of her mother and a man she does not recognize. What follows is the filmmaker’s semi-autobiographical tale of a postwar ménage-à-trois between a Jewish tailor, his mysterious brother, and a young mother. Romance and suspense combine to create an absorbing, emotionally driven story by the director of such pivotal films as Entre nous and C’est la vie.
