Drakkar

Sensuous, searching and corporeal, Charly Kermorgant's performance is central to Drakkar. There’s a luminosity and unflinching honesty to her every moment on screen. The tenderness and cruelty, the loneliness and joy of her grapple with living a principled life burn all the way through Drakkar.
Unlike Venus (who makes a cameo appearance in the film via a reproduction of Velázquez’s famous painting), Drakkar’s goddess of love has a beauty that is not self-absorbed. Instead, Charly’s character blossoms through her relationship with her lover, Jonath, and their dogs, Tofu and Homer. With dreams of hibernation and tales of being struck by lightning, Drakkar is an 'into the wild' love story. Living as they wish in the French hinterlands, Charly and Jonath face their freedom and desires head on.
