Thérèse Desqueyroux by Claude Miller will be screened at the closing ceremony of the 65th Festival de Cannes on 27 May.

The film features Audrey Tautou in the title role with Gilles Lellouche and Anaïs Demoustier.

Claude Miller’s final film is an adaptation of François Mauriac’s novel “Thérèse Desqueyroux”.

Miller died on April 4, 2012 in Paris at the age of 70 shortly after finishing this film. It is the final piece in his immense body of work, to which the Festival de Cannes will pay tribute.

“What thrills me in the filmmaking process is to focus on the interplay of appearances, gestures, looks, behaviour and to use them to try to intimate the inner lives of people, their secret garden, even though we only see them from the outside,” said Miller.

Claude Miller’s formative years were in Nouvelle Vague cinema, working as an assistant to François Truffaut.  He went on to make films like The Best Way to Walk (1976), The Grilling (1981), Deadly Run (1983), The Accompanist (1992), A secret (2007), The Hussy (1985), and Class Trip (1998) that won the Jury Prize at the Festival de Cannes.
