A looming tragedy prompts a reevaluation of interlocked lives.

Romain Duris and Juliette Binoche shine in this generous, delicately funny emotional drama. He plays Pierre, a young dancer whose future is suddenly left hanging in the balance by a medical diagnosis; she is his unfulfilled sister, taking a career break to care for him. With wonderful support from Fabrice Luchini and Albert Dupontel, this is a warm human drama from the director of Pot Luck and Russian Dolls.
