The female director Hansen-Løve specialises in realistic stories with gripping, convincing performances. Sandra (Léa Seydoux) goes on walks around Paris, worries about the state of her dad, and finds solace in the arms of a married man. A story full of warmth and longing, but also a painful one about love and the end of life. This is a beautiful and heartwarming film not to be missed.

“in this, her latest Cannes prize winner, Hansen-Løve hits a career high note, delivering a quietly thoughtful and ultimately life-affirming portrait of the strange interaction between loss and rebirth. It’s a miraculous balancing act that pretty much took my breath away.”
” I found myself locked in that strange conundrum of crying and smiling simultaneously. It’s a bittersweet dichotomy I treasure, and one that this beautiful film evokes perfectly.”
