First look at Mysius’s upcoming oddity.

French writer/director Léa Mysius impressed with her 2017 feature debut Ava. Her second movie The Five Devils is set to premiere at Cannes. The film stars newcomer Sally Dramé as Vicky, a young girl who lives in the Alps with her mother (Adèle Exarchopoulos) and possesses a gift of being able to recreate any scent she comes across. When her aunt (Swala Emati) arrives, Vicky discovers that her scent allows her to access long-hidden secrets.

The Five Devils has been picked up by MUBI for a UK/ROI theatrical release later this year, along with exclusive streaming on the platform.

Check out the first clip below.

The official synopsis reads:

Vicky (newcomer Sally Dramé), a strange and solitary little girl, has a magical gift: she can reproduce any scent she finds, which she bottles in an assortment of carefully labeled jars. One of those scents belongs to her mother, Joanne (Palme d'Or-winner Adèle Exarchopoulos), to whom Vicky feels an almost obsessive attachment. When the sudden reappearance of her father’s sister, Julia (Swala Emati), upends their conservative Alpine village and threatens the family's sense of domestic bliss, Vicky finds that by reproducing her aunt’s smell, she can traverse a series of increasingly dark and archaic memories that reveal the secrets of her village, her family, and her own existence.
