The Animal Kingdom

Original language: French

Le règne animal

In the near future, and maybe even next year, more and more people will gradually turn into beasts. As a mysterious disease spreads in France, the understanding of who is human begins to change. Mutants are separated from society by the government, but the medical transport crashes while transporting the patients to a special isolation unit, and some of them disappear. François, the husband of one of the doomed "mutants", is determined to radically change his and his son Emil's lives and desperately find her. The desire to get their loved one back will lead them down the most unexpected paths and force them to mature - perhaps not just their son, but all of us who think we are superior to nature.

After his debut feature film "Love at First Shot", director Thomas Calley immediately attracted everyone's attention at Cannes. His second film, Animal Kingdom, opened this year's Cannes Special View program and is breaking all the box office records in French cinemas.
