Guillaume Canet and Guillaume Gallienne play two of France’s most famous 19th century cultural figures in Daniele Thompson’s period drama. Set between the year 1888, when a nearly 50-year-old Cezanne confronts Zola about his novel L’Oeuvre and a slew of flashbacks recalling how the pair became school pals in Aix-en-Provence and grew up to share a mutual love of art and beautiful women, Thompson’s script keeps the action moving along while pinpointing the differences between the two stubborn creators.
