Almost nearing the age of 50, Mona seemingly leads a content life with her 30 year old, intellectually delayed son Joël in a modest apartment in Cergy. Joël is a working in an established institution that is dedicated to provide a mode of living for people with disabilities and the mother son duo does lead a happy life. However, Mona does not know how madly in love Joël is with his work colleague, Nadine and when she discovers
that the couple are expecting a baby and want to keep it, her relationship with her son is put to test. This heartwarming tale of filial love is reportedly under production with the title ‘Les Inséparables’ and is already predicted to be a compassionate entertainer piece.
The French film is set to be directed by Anne Sophie Bailly, a talented filmmaker who is known for her works ‘La Ventrière’ (2021) and ‘En Travail’ (2019). Anne Sophie Bailly will also be playing the role of the writer for the upcoming feature film. Being developed under Les Films Pelleas, a France based production company, ‘Les Inséparables’ is produced by David Thion (a member of Les Films Pelleas) and Philippe Martin. Joining the crew are other established members of the industry, Nader Chalhoub and Sandie Galan Perez.
Laure Calamy to Take the Lead Role
Laura Calamy, the renowned French film and TV actress will most likely take the center stage for this upcoming production. Laura Calamy began her career by participating in theatre performances and ever since then, has acted in numerous hits such as ‘My Donkey, My Lover & I’ (2020), ‘Two Tickets to Greece’ (2022) and ‘L’Origine Du Mal’ (2022) to name a few. In ‘Les Inséparables’, Laura Calamy will be playing the role of Mona, the mother. Mona’s character is that of an emotionally vulnerable woman and there is no doubt about Laura Calamy acing the role, if she would indeed accept it.
Other additions to the cast include, Charles Peccia and Julie Froger, both emerging and talented actors. With a strong plot and an established cast and crew, the production for ‘Les Inséparables’ will commence this month in France and Belgium.
The focus on the mother and son’s relationship and how it faces ruptures with an unexpected event does promise an engaging time for the potential audience of the film. What is left to see is how Joël and Mona find their way through the changes that will consequentially occur with the arrival of Joël and Nadine’s child.
