    • Synopsis
    • NELLY is a 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 film inspired by the life and work of novelist Nelly Arcan. A literary star in France and Quebec, her novels drew inspiration from her own experience as a professional escort before ultimately committing suicide at the age of thirty-six.
