Les Mains libres | Brigitte Sy, 2010
France | French | 100 minutes

Barbara (Ronit Elkabetz) is a filmmaker who is in the process of making a film about prison life. Twice a week, she visits a prison in the suburbs of Paris to interview inmates who will both write and act in the film. It is through these meetings that Barbara meets Michel (Carlo Brandt), one of the prisoners who will help her prepare the film. Their love for one another is a touching story of crossing boundaries, but have they gone too far? A critically acclaimed debut feature from rising director Brigitte Sy.
