CANNES 2019: ATLANTIQUE BY MATI DIOP

By Mónica Delgado

Atlantique’s title makes sense with a turn of the screw, a surprise effect that takes the film out of the love drama to render it as a fantastic one.

A young woman if forced to marry someone she doesn’t love, and at the same time, keeps the secret of a love affair.
