Michel Blanc, Emmanuelle Beart, Sami Bouajila, Julie Depardieu / Fiction / French
Sarah (Emmanuelle Béart at her most luminous) is a writer and new mother, who is not having much luck with either role. Her best friend Adrien (Michel Blanc) has fallen head over heels for a very young man, Manu (Johan Libérau) - but Manu in turn is more interested in Sarah's husband Mehdi (Sami Bouajila), whose devotion to his wife doesn't necessarily exclude the odd dalliance. As if things aren't complicated enough, it's the early 1980s, and there's a mysterious new virus in town... Directed by the prolific French master André Téchiné (Changing Times; Strayed), this is a heartfelt and intelligent adult drama of shifting loyalties and fickle affections, beautifully shot and performed.
