Set in the aftermath of the horrific November 2015 terrorist attacks in the heart of Paris – Paris Memories follows survivors as they try to come to terms with a tragedy that will change the course of their lives forever.
It is an evening in Paris like any other, as Mia (Virginie Efira) quietly enjoys dinner, sipping wine, gazing at the birthday celebrations at a nearby table – locking eyes with handsome Thomas (Benoît Magimel) from across the room. All of a sudden, a chorus of birthday song is interrupted by the hail of bullets as diners fight to stay alive, their comfortable existence torn apart by the violence of extremists.
Having managed to escape, Mia and Thomas reconnect in a desperate attempt to make sense of the disaster, trying to find closure after such a terrible, unexplainable attack. As the victims and their families scramble to piece the events together, the question remains – in the face of tragedy, is it better to remember or forget? Hailed by Variety as a “fine dramatic turn,” Virginie Efira delivers an incredibly moving and honest performance, in gripping scenes that expose the brutality of this truly devastating tragedy.
