France, Germany, 2016
Directed by Mia Hansen-Løve
Starring Isabelle Huppert, André Marcon, Roman Kolinka
Approx. 100 min. DCP.

"This delightful film from French filmmaker Mia Hansen-Løve (EDEN, GOODBYE FIRST LOVE, BERGMAN ISLAND) is her first built around a genuine star. Isabelle Huppert gives a typically intelligent and low-key performance as Nathalie, a Parisian philosophy teacher and writer who we meet at a point of personal and intellectual crisis. Her conservative school-teacher husband, Heinz (André Marcon), announces he’s leaving her for his mistress just as their two kids are growing up and fleeing the nest. Meanwhile, her flamboyant elderly mother (Edith Scob, star of Franju’s EYES WITHOUT A FACE) is difficult and unwell. In Nathalie’s professional life, her publishing house has little use for her anymore and her favourite former student, brooding free spirit Fabien (Roman Kolinka), is retreating to an anarchist collective in the mountains.” – Dave Calhoun, Time Out


“Ms. Hansen-Love observes the vagaries of Nathalie’s situation with compassion and lucidity”
– A.O. Scott, The New York Times
