Three French sisters have their lives interrupted and their relationship called into question when their father returns to visit 15 years after having abandoned them and their now-deceased mother. Each responds differently to his return according to how her character evolved from her relation with him and his unexpected departure. They eventually realize, though, that the somewhat elderly father is quickly losing his memory and his ability to function, and the youngest daughter's decision to accept him again while she can ends up permanently changing her family ties with her sisters.

Movie about three differing sisters, the oldest one a ballet teacher, who's never had any success and the youngest an aspiring concert pianist, living in poor housing conditions. The middle sister has made it, she's financially secure and helps the other sisters with money. Their lives are a little boring, just routine. Then suddenly, up pops their father. This man, played by Piccoli, left his family years ago, without leaving a message and an address. This return invokes different reactions in the sisters and places their own relation under stress. They react with hate, rejection and it confronts them with their youth. It proves that their father is slowly losing his memory and he wants to meet his daughters before he's lost his mind completely. The subject of this movie is not surprising and the story develops in a natural way. So in the end, it's all a bit tedious. It's nice to see Miou Miou again though.
