Victor (a charismatic Paul Blain) is a writer and recreational drug dabbler who destroys his life with his partner Annette (Marie-Christine Friedrich) and young daughter Pamela when he slips into full blown addiction.

Several years later, and against her mother’s wishes, Pamela (Constance Rousseau) will begin to respond to her father’s attempt to reconnect with her, with the outcome not being what any of them expect.

Made when she was just 25, All is Forgiven features all the hallmarks we have come to expect from Hansen-Løve’s films – troubled family relationships, a central character’s emotional awakening, and some loose real-life inspiration, with the passage of time proving revelatory yet undramatic.

Treating it’s characters unsentimentally yet with extraordinary empathy, it announced the arrival of a great European filmmaker.

This film is screening at Tyneside Cinema as a part of our season Things To Come: The Films of Mia Hansen-Løve, click here to find out more.
