On My Way

“This offbeat gem of a road trip film is a love letter to France's reigning queen of cinema.”– Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews

“This tender film works to remind us of how much we still love Catherine Deneuve, and succeeds in scene after scene.” – Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post

"An enjoyable ride … a comic drama with an exhilarating kick. Emmanuelle Bercot's agreeably ambling feature celebrates the inimitable Deneuve-ness of her leading lady.” – Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times

 

In On My Way, cinema legend Catherine Deneuve gives a subtle yet commanding performance, tender and generous, as former beauty queen Bettie, owner of a struggling restaurant in a small town in Brittany. Now in her early sixties, the once celebrated beauty finds herself jilted by her lover and left alone to face financial woes. Taking a quick drive to clear her head and momentarily escape from her problems, Bettie instead finds herself instead embarking on a full-fledged road trip; along the way there are chance meetings, an ex-Miss France gala reunion, renewed ties with her estranged daughter and grandson, and possibly, at the end of the road, love. Directed and co-written by Emmanuelle Bercot (Cleménte). (Dir. by Emmanuelle Bercot, 2013, France, in French with subtitles, 113 mins., Not Rated, Cohen Media Group) Digital
