Cendres et Sang

Opening today at Cannes: Cendres et Sang, written and directed by Fanny Ardant

Fanny Ardant, French film legend, steps behind the camera for Cendres et Sang, a juicy-looking family drama. Synopsis from the film's website:

Exiled from her country since her husband's murder ten years earlier, Judith lives in Marseille with her three children.

After having refused to see her family for years, Judith, in spite of her fears and secrets, allows herself to be influenced by her children's wishes and accepts an invitation to their cousin's wedding. They set off to spend a summer in the old country, discovering their roots and their past. But Judith's return revives old hatreds between rival clans. The spiral of violence is inexorably set in motion, blood will tell...

A couple of clips seem to be making the rounds as well...
