“Luminously headlined by Juliette Binoche, Claire Denis’s delightful foray into romantic kinda-comedy retains all the director’s signature sensual delicacy.” – Guy Lodge, Variety
“Its ending is immortal.” – Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice
Juliette Binoche delivers a luminous performance in the deliciously witty, sensuously romantic new film by acclaimed director Claire Denis. 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. There's a caddish banker who, like many of her lovers, happens to be married; a handsome actor who’s working through his own hang-ups; and a sensitive fellow artist who’s skittish about commitment. 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.
