Part of “Rendez-Vous with French Cinema 2010.” Actor Vincent Lindon in person.
Winner, César Award for Best Adapted Screenplay.
A delicate, moving tale that follows Jean (Vincent Lindon), a home contractor, as he finds himself increasingly attracted by the elegant charm of his son’s homeroom teacher (Sandrine Kiberlain). Director Stéphane Brizé carefully constructs the elegant, moving tale of unexpected romance with enormous patience and delicacy, sensitive to the rhythms of this special relationship full of misconstrued signals and ambiguous feelings. And Kiberlain and Lindon are both simply superb.
