Synopsis

A subversive period drama based on a story by Marie Henry Beyle, otherwise known as 'Stendhal', Isabel Coixet crafts a captivating drama that delves into the complexities of love, guilt, and redemption. Set in Paris, the film centres around Valeria (a compelling Monica Bellucci), a passionate teacher who becomes entangled in a tumultuous affair with Daniel (Eduardo Noriega), a troubled young doctor hiding a dark secret.

As their relationship unfolds, Valeria is drawn deeper into Daniel's world, confronting her own desires and insecurities along the way. Their romance is fraught with tension and uncertainty, as Daniel's past threatens to unravel their connection and jeopardize the lives of those around them.

Through its evocative storytelling and nuanced characterisations, Coixet offers a thought-provoking exploration of human relationships and the complexities of the human heart. It is a poignant reminder of the power of love to both heal and destroy, leaving a lasting impression on viewers long after the credits roll.
