I watched this while sandwiched into a centre aisle seat on a long Air |France flight to relieve the boredom. It's a subtly done film --- very much in the European genre --- about a prominent, middle aged but beautiful and fashionable |Paris radio talk show host who conceals her identity and seeks out the mother who had her illegitimately and abandoned her as an infant. A very nice, very simple film very nicely done. Even the ending has an intriguing twist. (No surprises, just a thought provoking twist that any former broadcaster, such as me, will relate to.) There are many subtle moments and many unsaid lines conveyed by well done facial expressions and gestures. Certainly better than contemplating Air France's rather dismal lunch tray.
