In a widely praised performance, Juliette Binoche plays Isabelle, a divorced Parisian painter. Searching for someone new, Isabelle refuses to settle as a parade of flawed men drift in and out of her life. They include a married banker (Xavier Beauvois) who’s a cad; a handsome actor (Nicolas Duvauchelle) working through his own hang-ups; and a sensitive fellow artist (Alex Descas) skittish about commitment. Veteran director Claire Denis (Chocolat; Beau Travail) transforms the standard romantic comedy into a perceptive contemplation about the profound mysteries of love.
“An exquisite romantic comedy whose laughs are sad and whose sadness is funny.” —Slant
