Guillaume Canet and Alba Rohrwacher are electric together in award-winning writer/director Stéphane Brizé's tender and moving new romance about two former lovers who unexpectedly cross paths.
It's winter. Approaching his 50th birthday, successful screen actor Mathieu (Canet) is facing a crisis of confidence; just weeks out from his stage debut, he has fled rehearsals to hide out in a luxury health spa on the Brittany coast. But being a major A-list celebrity, it’s impossible for Mathieu to lay low… the hotel staff and fellow guests are giddy about his presence, and the requests for selfies never end.
Then Mathieu receives a text from Alice (Rohrwacher), a woman he dated fifteen years prior; she's now a wife and mother who by chance lives nearby. Evidently torn by the manner in which they parted, they agree to meet for lunch…
Beautifully written, this elegant and wryly funny story of choices made and what-might-have-been is distinguished by the exquisite chemistry of Rohrwacher and Canet, who deliver deeply felt performances of subtlety and restraint. Drawing comparisons with Lean’s Brief Encounter, Sofia Coppola’s Lost in Translation and Celine Song’s recent Past Lives, this intimate and enormously affecting film charms from beginning to end. Don’t miss it.
