The Civic


Franz Rogowski (Transit NZIFF 2021, Disco Boy NZIFF 2023) plays Tomas, a narcissistic film director who sleeps with a young teacher Agathe (Adèle ExarchopoulosSibyl NZIFF 2019) after his film’s wrap party. He confesses this marital blunder to his husband, graphic designer Martin (Ben WhishawBad Behaviour NZIFF 2023), but continues the affair. Tomas darts between the two lovers at his whim with little thought for their hearts, and Agathe and Martin find themselves unable to escape his orbit. What ensues is an incisive study of restlessness, desire, entitlement and self-obsession.
