Directed by: Mia Hansen-Love
Staring: Isabelle Huppert, Andre Marcon, & Roman Kolinka
Isabelle Huppert as Nathalie delivers a note-perfect, warm, wry performance as a philosophy teacher who faces unexpected constraints and freedoms when her domestic life unravels. Mostly shot near Paris, with excursions to Brittany and the Alps, Nathalie’s life is in flux. Her former lover Heinz (Marcon) taunts her about her shifting politics but he has a secret. A film about the passing of time and life’s expectations and disappointments. The chaos of life is distilled as a warm, thoughtful drama. Huppert won several awards for her role in the film.
