When ageing dance band singer Alain Moreau (Gerard Depardieu) encounters younger estate agent Marion (Cécile De France) in the crowd at one of his gigs, a tentative relationship begins to unfold, testing their expectations of themselves and each other. Xavier Giannoli's quietly assured and affecting drama features fine performances from charismatic leads Depardieu and De France in a bitter sweet story about the choices we make in life and love. Depardieu's performance as the middle aged, sentimental crooner is perfectly pitched, bringing subtlety and pathos to a role which he inhabits with ease.
