From psychological dramas celebrating kick-ass female directors, life-affirming stories of Holocaust survival, to pondering the next agricultural revolution, Kismet films will take you on a journey through wildly different worlds, BUT they all have something pretty special to say and something pretty important to talk about.

Anaïs in Love is a sensual, funny and endearing French romantic comedy. Young Anaïs begins an affair with a much older man but finds herself falling for his wife. This ménage à trois elegantly navigates fantasy, sensuality and melancholy in a film that grows in intensity with each passing minute. Reminiscent of an Eric Rohmer or Greta Gerwig film, comic situations abound in Charline Bourgeois-Tacquet’s sparkling debut feature, with writing that draws sincere and captivating performances from Podalydès as a man out of his depth and Tedeschi as a woman on the edge of awakening.
