Directed by Léa FehnerDrama | French | 142 min | 2015With François Fehner, Marion Bouvarel, Marc Barbé, Adèle Haenel, Inès Fehner
In Léa Fehner’s exuberant feature Les Ogres, a struggling traveling theater company overcomes a painful past, unruly performers, and an invasion of bovines to keep performing in the fields and vacant lots of southwest France. Based on the director’s own childhood and starring her father, mother, and sister along with movie greats Marc Barbé and Adèle Haenel, Les Ogres is a painfully intimate, authentic story with a joyful, ebullient sense of spectacle.
