Ismael’s Ghosts

When fiction becomes reality
The story follows a filmmaker whose life is sent into a tailspin by the return of a former lover just as he is about to embark on the shoot of a new film.
Ismaël Vuillard makes films. He is in the middle of one about Ivan, an atypical diplomat inspired by his brother. Along with Bloom, his master and father-in-law, Ismaël still mourns the death of Carlotta, twenty years earlier. Yet he has started his life over again with Sylvia. Sylvia is his light. Then Carlotta returns from the dead. Sylvia runs away. Ismaël rejects Carlotta. Driven mad by these ordeals, he abandons the shoot for his family home in Roubaix. There, he lives as a recluse, besieged by his ghosts.

Media reception

The Hollywood Reporter
"The use of both dialogue and film language is sophisticated."
The New York Times
"As is customary in Mr. Desplechin’s work, there’s a lot of dialogue but nerve endings vibrate tenderly in scenes where not a word is spoken."
