Marvin is a young boy, abused by his family,
undergoing mockery and sexual aggression by his peers.
Finding salvation Marvin Bijou runs away. Changes his name to Martin ClÃ©ment. He has fled his small village in the Vosges Mountains, escaping his family - his fatherâ€™s tyranny and his motherâ€™s resignation; intolerance and rejection, the bullying he suffered from being singled out as "different". Against all odds, he somehow manages to find allies: first, Madeleine ClÃ©ment, the middle school principal who introduces him to theater and whose name he later adopts as a symbol of his salvation. And then, Abel Pinto, his mentor and role model, who will encourage him to tell his story. Marvin, who becomes Martin, will risk everything to create a show that represents so much more than success; it's his path to reinvention in the artistic expression.
A compelling and searing chronicle of a young gay man leaving the life he has known in order to become someone else. Like her previous film The Innocents (LFF2016), Reinventing Marvin showcases director Anne Fontaineâ€™s skill at balancing complex subject matter with social relevance. Marvin Bijou (rising French star Finnegan Oldfield), a young boy from a working-class family in a small French village, suffers constant bullying at school and home for being â€˜differentâ€™ â€“ too sensitive and too feminine. A chance encounter with a drama teacher opens the doors to a world that offers him the chance to escape his situation. Following Marvin into his mid-twenties as a theatre student in Paris, Fontaine presents a richly layered tale about identity building and transformation. With an exquisite cameo from Isabelle Huppert and great performances from the reliably excellent Vincent Macaigne & Charles Berling, Reinventing Marvin packs a powerful punch --BFI-FLARE-MARVIN.
