Having packed up her possessions to move in with her lover, Laure is more unsettled than she appears. Needing to get out and have a change of scenery, she jumps in her car to go to have dinner with friends--only to become stuck in a terrible traffic jam. Laure completely forgot about the mass transit strike that has thrown the city into chaos. But Laure feels good in her car, the only place she has for herself right now. As she takes in the sights and sounds around her--the blare of horns and arguments, the shimmer of lights and camaraderie--Laure notices a calm and self-assured stranger, Jean, approach her car. Soon thereafter, she opens her car door door to the man who--that night--will change her life. Written by

This movie gets a lot of unjust criticism. People watch this movie expecting some kind of action-filled plot sequence, but this movie is made to convey a feeling; it conveys emotion and does so beautifully. This film conveys lust and some other emotions that don't even have names well, and it can only be known once it has been seen. Don't watch this movie looking for a twisting plot, just look at it as a piece of work that will make you feel... not think. I recommend turning off subtitles and listening to the french. Even if you don't speak it, the words are not important. What's important is that you leave your heart open for emotional stimulation.
