Claire Denis returns to Africa for the first time since ‘Beau Travail’ for a mesmerising portrait of civil war, racial tension and one woman’s resistance to change in an unnamed, French-speaking African country. Isabelle Huppert lends her poetic resolve and earthy beauty to Maria, a woman trying to squeeze one last week out of her dilapidated coffee plantation even as her workers drift away and the possibility of violence or death becomes increasingly likely.
