About the film:

Official Selection, 2022 Cannes Film Festival

Vicky has a mysterious gift: she can recreate any scent she comes across, even that of her beloved mother Joanne. When her estranged aunt suddenly returns to town, the invocation of her fragrance plunges the young girl back in time to unravel a past replete with family secrets and queer romance.

A confirmation of Mysius’ undeniable directorial talents, “The Fire Devils” will surely be one of the year’s most captivating films.”

—Peter Sobczynski, Roger Ebert
