The daughter of her mother and the mother of her daughter, Nathalie examines herself anew at the cusp of middle age. What has she settled for? What would she change if she could? What does she want to do with the rest of her life?
Profound meditation on the seasons of a woman’s life written and directed by Mia Hansen-Løve, and depicted on screen by Isabelle Huppert (one of the best actresses on the contemporary scene). Wonderful the first time I watched it and even better the second time. (JLH: 5/5)
