THE SOWER

by Marine Francen

In 1851, France’s autocratic President Louis-Napoléon Bonaparte has ordered the arrest of all the men of a remote mountain farming village following a Republican uprising. For the next two years, the village is completely cut off. The women who remain swear an oath that if a man should come, he will become their shared husband.

Synopsis

The winner of the prestigious New Director competition at the San Sebastian Film Festival, Marine Francen’s debut is a sensual, visually stunning historical romance.  In 1851, France’s autocratic President Louis-Napoléon Bonaparte has ordered the arrest of all the men of a remote mountain farming village following a Republican uprising.  The women spend years in total isolation, forced to tend the crops themselves.  Some women have lost their husbands; others, like the shy but inwardly strong Violette, suddenly have no chance of experiencing physical love or motherhood.  The women take an oath: if a man comes, they will share him as a lover.  When a mysterious and handsome stranger arrives, he ignites passions and jealousies that threaten to destroy the tight-knit community.  In the vein of THE BEGUILED and THE GUARDIANS, Marine Francen strikingly beautiful first feature is a part of a new wave of female-focused historical drama.
