Storyline

Four different instances in the life of the same woman, as this is divided into four significant periods of her existence, such as childhood, puberty, adolescence and adulthood, all representing fragments and diverse aspects of her being as its central focal point. Emotionally damaged, Renée is a caring school teacher who is committed to the education of the underprivileged youth, trying to get pregnant with her boyfriend in an attempt to straighten up her life. However, her past is going to catch up with her in the shape of Tara, a self-destructive, addicted gambler, who has some unfinished business with her which date back some seven years ago. As we make a step back in time, we find Sandra, a careless and fresh young woman in her twenties, who is introduced to the world of horse races by the professional gambler, the elderly Lev who gives her a job at the racetrack as a "mule" carrying bet money to the cashiers. Later on and further back in time, Karine is an early-developed, ... Written by Nick Riganas

A very interesting movie
1 April 2017 | by GUENOT PHILIPPESee all my reviews

You may think about David Fincher's BENJAMIN BUTTON, but on a lesser scale, of course, when you see this French film telling the story of a woman during the four major steps of her life. Child, teen, young woman and a little later. And those phases are shown through four different faces, four different faces. A splendid cast which emphasizes a moving but very sad tale that will let no one unaffected. Adèle Haenel and Exarchopoulos are both outstanding in two of the female's faces. And the editing did not bother me at all. But I am afraid that many audiences will avoid this film. Sure, this is not a comedy and this dark side of the characters can be depressing to many folks. such a shame. I highly recommend it.
