Claire Denis’s delicate and graceful film begins in the territory of Renoir’s La Bete humaine and develops into an unlikely and enchanted evocation of Ozu’s Late Spring. Denis regular Alex Descas is Lionel, a Parisian train driver who lives in peace and contentment with his “marriageable” daughter Josephine (Mati Diop), until she notices the stirrings of love from the boy across the hall (Gregoire Colin). Shot by frequent Denis collaborator Agnes Godard, with a score by Tindersticks.
