A family struggles with life in Marseilles’s gig economy in Robert Guédiguian’s moving drama, his 19th film in collaboration with his wife Ariane Ascaride, who stars.

Sylvie (Ascaride) is the matriarch of a family almost literally racing around the French port city to make ends meet, working as bus drivers, housecleaners, or Uber drivers, all of them cogs in the great gig economy. When the eldest daughter gives birth to a baby girl, Sylvie’s former husband, and the biological father of her children, returns from a twenty-year stretch in prison, emotions are strained. A brilliant entry in Guédiguian’s lifelong study of French leftist ideology and its effects on the working class in Marseilles, Gloria Mundi is a heartfelt and gorgeous film.
