Some moving scenes but it is meandering to nowhere
Director Renaud Fely makes his debut with this movie and he sometimes hits the right notes and directs moving scenes.
The movie is about Pauline (Laura Smet), a young widow from Paris who comes to small rural town in the French countryside. She gets a job at a bank via her friend Catherine (Lea Drucker), via whom she also rents a (farm)house. Opposite this house lives the brother of Catherine François (Yannick Renier). He helps Catherine and her husband out since they have financial problems. This together with a family tragedy are the components with which we meander through scenes which seem to have little connection.
Though some scenes were moving it was hard to keep my attention. Not because of the slow pace, which it indeed had, but that was fitting, no it is hard to keep focused because moving from one scene to the next had no consequence.
And that sums it up for this movie. If you like looking at a river meandering through the country site watch it otherwise don't be surprised if you are heading nowhere.
