FRAGILE (HARD SHELL, SOFT SHELL)
Az works on an oyster farm in Sète, in the South of France. Oysters hold no secrets for him, but he must open several before he finds a pearl! He is in love with Jess, an actress in a police series, and asks her to marry him. She refuses and leaves him. On the advice of Lila, his childhood friend, Az choreographs a dance routine to win her back. Interspersed with dance numbers and oriental pastries, FRAGILE questions gender and social dynamics in a society that claims to be egalitarian. In her first feature film, director Emma Benestan turns the tables and depicts male heartbreak in this zany romantic comedy.
