Writer/director Jeanne Herry, once again, weaves a powerful tale that quietly builds, packing an emotional wallop we never see coming, in this poignant story of resilience, redemption and even forgiveness. She and her accomplished ensemble cast illustrate the delicate dance that takes place within restorative justice programs, which provide a safe space for dialogue between criminal offenders and victims of similar crimes. All Your Faces brings together a rich tapestry of victims and perpetrators of burglaries, rape, a mugging, armed robbery and physical assault, gingerly paving a road between the two… that somehow leads to understanding, accountability and healing.
Writer/director Jeanne Herry is the daughter of singer-songwriter Julien Clerc and iconic French actress Miou-Miou, who plays a pivotal role in All Your Faces. Herry began her career as an actress, performing in such films as Louis Malle’s May Fools and Patrice Chéreau’s Gabrielle. She made her directorial debut with the dark comedy Number One Fan (COLCOA 2015, Critics Special Mention), which was nominated for two César Awards. She directed two episodes of Call My Agent! (season 2) for France 2 (COLCOA 2016, Best Series Award). Her second feature, In Safe Hands (COLCOA 2019) was nominated for an impressive seven César Awards — for Best Actress (both Sandrine Kimberlain and Elodie Bouchez), Best Actor (Gilles Lellouche), Musical Score, Original Screenplay, Director and Best Film. All Your Faces, her third feature, was released to great success in France in late March.
