Storyline

Fabienne is a star; a star of French cinema. She reigns amongst men who love and admire her. When she publishes her memoirs, her daughter Lumir returns from New York to Paris with her husband and young child. The reunion between mother and daughter will quickly turn to confrontation: truths will be told, accounts settled, loves and resentments confessed. Written by Producer

Disappointing
5 January 2020 | by justinelhSee all my reviews

Whilst the cast was good I was not impressed as the movie was a bit "blah" no highlights really and all in all a bit monotonous. Maybe harsh but that is my view.
