WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Nine years after she left him for his best friend, journalist Abel (Garrel) is reunited with his former love Marianne (Casta), now widowed.

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

French actor Louis Garrel’s second film as director is both a classic farce and a homage to the New French Wave era – also, look out for a supporting turn by Lily-Rose Depp, the daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis.
