Actress Juliette Binoche will be in attendance for the screening on November 24th and partake in a Q&A hosted by John Maguire.
The feature directorial debut of actress Sylvie Testud (Lourdes) sees Juliette Binoche as Marie, a young woman who meets and spends the night with Paul (Mathieu Kassovitz). When she wakes up, she discovers that 15 years have passed of which she has no memory, and in which time she has acquired an impressive career, a son and a marriage to Paul which seems headed for divorce. While there is much humour in Binoche adapting to the minutiae of modern life, the film is essentially a cautionary tale of how easily one can become distracted from one’s most important relationships.
Director’s Note: Juliette Binoche is terrific in this bittersweet time-travel comedy-drama by award-winning actress and novelist Sylvie Testud.
Showing as part of the 2012 IFI French Film Festival.
