Nelly
A film by Anne Émond 

feature-length film 

 

 
 
SYNOPSIS

A film inspired by the life and work of Nelly Arcan. The portrait of a fragmented woman, lost between irreconcilable identities: writer, lover, call girl and star.  Several women in one, navigating between great exaltation and great disenchantment.  A film mirror of a violent life and a radical work; a tribute to a dense writing, chilling and necessary.
