On my way

French actress Catherine Deneuve is the star of Emmanuelle Bercot latest movie On my Way, a very pleasant and moving French road movie.

 

 

 

Now in her early sixties, former beauty queen Bettie (Catherine Deneuve) finds herself jilted by her lover and left alone to deal with the financial problems facing her family’s restaurant. What begins as a quick drive to clear her head turns into a full-fledged road trip, and along the way there are chance meetings, an ex-Miss France gala, renewed ties with her estranged daughter and grandson, and possibly, at the end of the road, love.

Catherine Deneuve, who plays the main character Bettie, inspired Emmanuelle Bercot (Polisse) who wrote the screenplay specifically for her. Deneuve appears in every scene, natural with her flaws, her wrinkles, her rictus, but real, beautiful and full of energy. Awesome performance... once again:-)
