An idiosincratic but very endearing film
27 April 2019 | by roman-15See all my reviews

No doubt this is a relatively minor film. But it's touching, endearing, quirky and often funny. Loved the way the storyline develops, specially as regards Agathe, the recently widowed film director.

Very simple, very lovely. Thanks to MUBI for the opportunity to see this film and the excellent work of its director
