Just before reaching the pinnacle of fame and freshly arrived in New York from Russia, Veronica happily gives up her career as a pianist to raise her son. Despite constant pressures from her husband Paul, a French stockbroker, she retreats into an indefinite hiatus from performing while fully enjoying her role as a mother. But without a salary or an independent work identity, Veronica's dependency on Paul grows and a sense of personal dislocation sets in. The question of going back on stage arises more painfully when she meets Amanda, an alluring, promising, and younger pianist from Paris, who soon falls for Paul.

Stays in your mind
25 April 2017 | by agataduchampSee all my reviews

As someone said in a previous comment there is a lot of humor so you are fairly entertained but at the same time the world depicted in this film is ice cold. It's a great contrast which I don't remember having seen in films in a while. One minute you laugh and the minute after you are tacking aback by the nastiness of the dialog and the sadness of the situation. Living with expatriates is no fun apparently. The end is very surprising and I keep thinking about it. Actors are good, specially the main actress and a male small second role whose name escapes me. I also loved the way New York is shown. It stays in your mind.
