Divorced Parisian painter, Isabelle (Juliette Binoche) is searching for another shot at love. There's a caddish banker (Xavier Beauvois) who, like many of her lovers, happens to be married; a handsome actor (Nicolas Duvauchelle) who's working through his own hang-ups; and a sensitive fellow artist (Alex Descas) who's skittish about commitment. What reads like a standard romantic comedy premise is transformed, in the hands of master filmmaker Denis, into something altogether deeper, more poignant, and perceptive about the profound mysteries of love.
“Binoche is everywhere in this story. As in ‘Three Colors: Blue’ and ‘The English Patient’ she delivers a rich portrait of a restless heart, steeped in earthiness and radiance alike.” The New Yorker
