Widely praised following its world premiere as a Special Presentation at the
Toronto International Film Festival, director Rithy Panh's (RICE PEOPLE)
celebrated period epic set in the rich landscape of French colonial
Indochine is a highly successful adaptation of Marguerite Duras' acclaimed
and semi-autobiographical novel "Un Barrage Contre le Pacifique", featuring
a leading performance by BAFTA Award Winner and recipient of the European
Film Academy's 2009 Achievement in World Cinema, Isabelle Huppert.

Deceived into investing all of her savings in worthless, regularly flooded
farmland, incapable of supporting crops and perilously close to the ocean,
THE SEA WALL tells the compelling story of one mother's fight to protect her
family - Joseph (Gaspard Ulliel, HANNIBAL RISING, A VERY LONG ENGAGEMENT)
and Suzanne (Astrid Berges-Frisbey) from destitution at the hands of a
corrupt administration.

Battling both the colonial bureaucrats and nature itself, she enlists the
help of the local villagers, putting into place an elaborate scheme:
building a dam against the sea to secure the future of both her family and
the local community.
