Czech Republic, France, United Kingdom | 2011 | Christophe Honoré
Catherine Deneuve, Milos Forman, Ludivine Sagnier, Louis Garrel, and Chiara Mastroianni star in this new romance that closed the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. The movie tells of a young Paris shop girl (Sagnier) who falls for a Czech doctor, moves to Prague, and has a daughter with him. Four decades (and a divorce) later, these same lovers are played by Deneuve and Forman, and their now grown-up daughter (Mastroianni) is caught up in romantic entanglements that echo those of her parents from years before. Cross-cutting between time periods and relationships, and having characters burst into song or confront their earlier selves, director Christophe Honoré (Love Songs, Dans Paris) has constructed a funny, sad, whimsical, and lyrical epic as expansive and emotional as life itself. “Amazingly moving.” –Washington Post. Cleveland premiere.
