Academy-award winner Juliette Binoche stars in the sophisticated romantic drama that follows the melodramatic love affairs of Parisian artist, Isabelle.
Isabelle is a divorced Parisian painter searching for another shot at love, but refusing to settle for the parade of all-too-flawed men who drift in and out of her life. There’s a caddish banker, who like many of her lovers, happens to be married; a handsome actor who is working through his own hang-ups; and a sensitive fellow artist, who is skittish about commitment. What reads like a standard romantic comedy, master filmmaker Claire Denis shapes the film into something altogether deeper, more poignant, and perceptive about the profound mysteries of love.
