N/C 15+ SELFIE
2019 | Dir Tristan Aurouet, Thomas Bidegain | 108mins | France
These five darkly humorous, interlinking stories explore our increasing dependence upon digital media. Cyberstalking, social media, online shopping, swipe dating, vlogging – all come under its insightful gaze. Starring Fanny Sidney from Netflix hit Call My Agent, Selfie is much cleverer proposition than most anthology or portmanteau films, with characters and plot lines recurring throughout the different stories. As the web connections grow, the film builds towards a grande finale set at a wedding on an island with no mobile phone signal – until someone finds one, leading to an hilarious showdown. French with English subtitles.

Leslie Sheldon (YourScreen) talks with Fanny Sidney here.
“The stories complement each other perfectly well and sometimes respond to each other thanks to ‘connections’ between the characters in the different acts. Selfie therefore manages to fulfill its double promise by giving viewers a good time, while opening up avenues for them to think about the importance, not always happy, taken by digital technology in today’s society. A great success!”
