Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 03/2015

Production is underway this summer at locations in Poland, Germany and France for Marie Noëlle’s film about Marie Curie, the world-renowned scientist and winner of the Nobel Prizes for Physics and Chemistry. According to the film’s director and producer Marie Noëlle, "MARIE CURIE tells the story of an exemplary woman’s fate and draws the portrait of a passionate woman, a loving mother and sensual lover who, despite her sense of reason, throws herself into a man’s arms. We want to show the humanity of a woman whose private history was extremely painful, but whose strength was inspiring for so many of us that she became a great role model for generations of women."
