Ismaël’s Ghost features a love triangle of powerhouse performers – Mathieu Amalric, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Marion Cotillard – in what is essentially a moving, identity thriller from the fertile imagination of writer-director Arnaud Desplechin (A Christmas Tale).
Filmmaker Ismaël (Mathieu Amalric) is in pre-production for his next film based on the life of diplomat, Ivan (Louis Garrel). His happy existence with astrophysicist girlfriend Sylvia (Charlotte Gainsbourg) is shattered when his past love, Carlotta (Marion Cotillard), mysteriously re-appears after a lengthy absence in which she had been missing, presumed dead.
Little is as it appears to be on the surface in this richly layered and genre-twisting film that keeps the audience guessing until the end. It also marks the seventh collaboration between writer-director Arnaud Desplechin and actor-director Mathieu Amalric, paying testament to the artistic rapport between these two great figures in French filmmaking.
