The Five Devils 15

Léa Mysius, France, 2022, 95m.

Eight-year-old Vicky (newcomer Sally Dramé) has an unusual gift: she can recreate any scent she comes across, even that of her beloved mother Joanne (Palme d’Or winner Adèle Exarchopoulos).

When Vicky’s estranged aunt suddenly returns to their mountain town, the invocation of her fragrance plunges the young girl back in time to unravel the mystery of Joanne’s fiery past with her now sister-in-law.

The acclaimed breakout from filmmaker Léa Mysius (screenwriter for Claire Denis and Jacques Audiard), The Five Devils forges a witchy and wildly imaginative fable out of family secrets and queer romance.

The Garden Cinema View:

A gathering storm of fire, ice, vertiginous peaks, and placid alpine lakes, The Five Devils is a supremely controlled genre-hopping tale of queer desire and memory. Featuring olfactory time travel, beautiful cinematography, and an all time great karaoke scene, Léa Mysius’ sophomore feature is one of 2023’s most delightful cinematic surprises.

Adèle Exarchopoulos, Swala Emati, Sally Dramé, Moustapha Mbengue
