            The Kiss

            Release date : 03/01/2019
            Two strong women, anonymous heroines of the everyday, find themselves linked a century apart by Brancusi’s famous sculpture, The Kiss.
            Camille, a disillusioned corporate lawyer, finds herself entrusted with an unusual matter: to find the true owner of a sculpture which decorates a young woman’s tomb in Paris’s Montparnasse Cemetery. A mysterious art dealer has threatened to remove this magnificent artwork which depicts two lovers enlaced in each other’s arms.... Camille, a disillusioned corporate lawyer, finds herself entrusted with an unusual matter: to find the true owner of a sculpture which decorates a young woman’s tomb in Paris’s Montparnasse Cemetery. A mysterious art dealer has threatened to remove this magnificent artwork which depicts two lovers enlaced in each other’s arms. But does it in fact belong to the untraceable heirs of the deceased, to the current owner of the burial plot, or to all those who visit the cemetery? To determine the rightful owner, Camille must travel one hundred years into the past and follow the life of Tania, a young Russian medical student and anarchist, who leaves her aristocratic family and takes refuge in bohemian Montparnasse where the artistic avant-garde lead garrulous, reckless lives. In the greatest secrecy, Tania becomes the mistress and muse of the Romanian sculptor Constantin Brancusi. But at that time, falling pregnant by an artist who flees all kind of marital commitment could easily lead to tragedy. One hundred years later as she pieces together the reasons for Tania’s suicide, Camille has the opportunity not only to reestablish the dignity of one forgotten woman, but also to pay homage to all the free women who were unjustly banished from society. By oscillating between the narratives of these two women, Sophie Brocas paints a double portrait set in both 1910 and 2010. This masterful melding of historical epic and psychological investigation results in a gripping novel that questions the status of artworks over time. Are they meant to rest in the hands of dealers and owners for all eternity, or do they end up belonging to us all as part of the heritage of humanity?
