Showtimes & Tickets

Screened March 23–April 26, 2018

In his latest film Arnaud Desplechin (My Golden Days, Kings & Queen) continues his highly personal approach to the relationship film, with his trademark serio-comic emotional turbulence and sprinkling of autobiographical echoes. Working on his next film, widowed filmmaker Ismaël (perennial Desplechin stand-in Mathieu Amalric) settles in at a coastal cottage with his astrophysicist girlfriend Sylvia (Charlotte Gainsbourg) to rewrite his script. His private and professional life, not to mention mental stability, are thrown into chaos, however, when his presumed-dead wife Carlotta (Marion Cotillard) reappears without warning. 

In French with English subtitles.
