Isabelle Huppert shines as a one-time singer (and Eurovision runner-up) who retired after a split with her manager/husband. Now spending her days working in a pâté factory and evenings on the couch, she’s jolted from her stupor by a budding friendship with a handsome young co-worker, and even starts entertaining the notion of a musical comeback. A beautifully observed character portrait, Souvenir gives the incomparable Huppert the chance to show her ample comedic flair.
In French with English subtitles.
