Veteran French actress Fanny Ardant (Swann in Love) is radiant in this charming French drama about an older married woman’s affair with a younger man.
Ardant plays Caroline, a sixty year old retired dentist who is given a trial membership for an activity centre for old people. After finding the courses dull and the company grating, Caroline gets chatting to the handsome IT teacher Julien and starts a secret affair with the younger man.
A rare opportunity to see an older woman as the main protagonist in this a well-written, plausible and engaging story.
“A perfect fit for what used to be the trademark of French cinema – lightly romantic, painlessly sinful, love affairs.” Screen International
