I agree 90% with Auberus' comments. However, Love , the one with a capital L, between Pierre and Louise is tested in an unexpected way. It's put in danger of showing to be unequal to the challenge: perhaps it can turn out to be love without a capital L. In sum: Goog plot, good script. Presents some dramatic, hard to face choices, some with ethical contents. Overall tempo of the film is restrained, shaded, as frequently seen in good European films. Very good acting by and large. Good photography. For those interested in architecture, the urban location is the dry and yet elegant group of apartment buildings designed by architect Perret, a reference in concrete buildings.
