Director Catherine Breillat

After making the most autobiographical film of her career in Abuse of Weakness, in which she recreated her own victimization by a con artist after a stroke, director Catherine Breillat will veer in the opposite direction. 

Written by Brian Jones, Bridge of Floating Dreams will be the first project the French auteur didn't originate, as well as her first English-language work. 

The script centers on a romance between a nightclub hostess and an Australian backpacker in 1960s Japan. "In the relationship between Miyoshi and Sean there is something of 'romance,' but more flamboyant and carnal; more romantic and Romanesque," commented Breillat.
