A charming and popular man, Gregoire (Louis-Do de Lencquesaing) appears to lead an enviable life. Happily married with three kids, he runs a respected company that produces indie films.
However, the enormous debts that Gregoire owes to various banks, creditors and film labs leads the producer to a drastic course of action.
Mia Hansen-Love’s film is both a convincing portrait of the punishing realities of funding arthouse cinema and an affecting study of a family attempting to keep going after a personal tragedy.
It’s also a thoughtfully structured work graced by moments of quiet beauty and exceptional performances.
