Aroview: Juliette Binoche is radiant as a Parisian artist and divorced mother who bravely searches for sexual fulfillment and companionship in middle age. Loosely based on Roland Barthes’s book A Lover’s Discourse: Fragments, and directed by the exceptional Claire Denis.
The support cast includes Josiane Balasko, Gerard Depardieu, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi and Nicolas Duvauchelle.
“Rather than a chic bagatelle, this proves an acutely intelligent, finely acted and – despite its cerebral edge - emotionally rich piece.”
~JONATHAN ROMNEY, SCREEN INTERNATIONAL
