Director: Jacques Audiard

123 minutes, France/Belgium, 2012

Ali (Matthias Schoenaerts) has moved from Belgium to the south of France with his 5-year-old son Sam. The two now live with Ali’s sister and her partner, and he soon finds work as a nightclub bouncer. One night at the club, he saves Stéphanie (Marion Cotillard) from a brawl and escorts her home. When she loses her legs in a workplace accident, she calls Ali on impulse, and, despite their differences and initial disagreements, a slow and complex courtship begins. Audiard elicits superb performances from his leads in this distinctive love story. (KC)
