In the 1960s in Normandy, Mina, Georges' beautiful and sensible wife, seeks to escape from her routine life by going to the cinema with Tommy, their fifteen-year-old boy. After a screening of West Side Story, Matthias, a man they are sitting next to, invites them for a drink at a dance hall. At the same time, Georges finds a job at a building site and is compelled to stay away from home the whole week long. The growing passion between Mina and Matthias is as painful for Tommy as for Georges. He finally accepts Mina's departure, as he hopes that this love affair will not last long ... Written by

I really enjoyed this movie when I saw it recently on the Sundance Channel. I really dislike about 95% of the films provided by Hollywood and I wish we could have more films like this.
I have always liked Depardieu films and this is just one more example of why I like him as an actor. It is just a character study of how several people try to get through life. In fact, it is probably how most of us get through life and you rarely see it portrayed in films from Hollywood.
I know that most people that I know would not like a film like this, but I am sure thankful that I get to see them.
