Family & Companions
Former member of Jean-Louis Barrault's theater group who made her film directing debut with "Peppermint Soda" (1977), the first installment in an absorbing semi-autobiographical trilogy. "Peppermint Soda" was France's highest-grossing film of 1977 and won the Prix Louis Delluc as Best Picture of the Year. "A Man in Love" (1987), Kurys' first film with a male protagonist, was a watery international melodrama which lacked the conviction of her earlier work.
