Nathalie is shown walking through the mud flats exposed along the beach at low tide. As she walks, she is clearly following footprints. Since the mud was previously underwater, the footprints must be from a previous take of Isabelle Huppert walking along the same path. See more »

The future
22 April 2020 | by IreneWatsonCSee all my reviews

Nathalie's vacation model runs through the entire movie. When many people are old, they may regret it because they have no time or no opportunity to enjoy their time. In fact, giving up is not always a bad thing. In one's live, there are always times when we need to give up. Learning to let it go will make us move forward more easily. Give up those who do not want to take away and throw away the things you do not want to remember. Let yourself believe that there will be a broader existence when you move forward. No matter what form the future happens, our life will always continue. The future is now, and it is the most important thing to live well in every moment now.
