Having just separated from her boyfriend, heartbroken Jeanne knocks on her father’s door. But her warm welcome is matched by a baffling discovery: her father’s young new and passionate girlfriend is his student, and Jeanne’s age. With this swift, touching ode to lovers with heart-breaking, irreconcilable differences, Philippe Garrel has produced a casual, bittersweet, and intoxicating study of relationships.

Preview screening on 17 January preceded by a filmed introduction of actress Esther Garrel
