Actor Mathieu Amalric delivers a new jewel as a director, starred by Jeanne Balibar and winning two César Awards (including Best Main Actress), and the award for best narrative poetry at Festival de Cannes. Brigitte, an internationally renowned actress, arrives at Paris to participate in a film about iconic French singer Barbara. As the days go on, reality and fiction mix for the filming crew and Brigitte herself.

(…) a first class cinematographic exercise, complex, multifaceted, immense, meta-fictional, solved with an ease and professionalism reminiscent of masters like Truffaut or Godard. After watching, fascination, impact, immanence of several personalities and feelings and sensations linger on. Ignasi Juliachs (La Vanguardia)

A pointillist film, proposed an original biographical outline (…) A stimulating proposal where Amalric establishes a paradoxical game of mirrors, Chinese boxes, cinema inside cinema and much more (…) Alberto Bermejo (El Mundo)

Amalric, between Barbara and Balibar, demonstrates again his personality as a director. He is not an international with a whim to direct. Quim Casas (El Periódico)

Barbara is, like its main character’s songs, a vital, atmospheric, dreamlike film subject to constant changes. Sharp, mobile and poignant, like life itself. Javier Ocaña (El País)
