“Denis’s foray into the often-goofy world of the rom-com is at once a cold bath of realism and a bewitching portrait of the power of love — however fleeting that feeling may be.” David Sims, The Atlantic
Juliette Binoche delivers a luminous performance in the deliciously witty, sensuously romantic new film from acclaimed director Claire Denis (White Material). Isabelle (Binoche) is a divorced Parisian painter searching for another shot at love but refusing to settle for the parade of all-too-flawed men who drift in and out of her life. What reads like a standard romantic comedy premise is transformed in the hands of master filmmaker Denis into something altogether deeper, more poignant, and perceptive about the profound mysteries of love.
NR; 96 minutes; French with English subtitles
