40-year-old philosophy professor Sophia is in a stable if somewhat socially conforming relationship with Xavier. From gallery openings to endless dinner parties, ten years have already flown by. Sylvain is a craftsman renovating Sophia and Xavier’s new country house. When Sophia and Sylvain meet, her world is turned upside down. Opposites attract, but can they last?
The third full feature film by actor-director Monia Chokri, who is best known for her role in Xavier Dolan’s Heartbeats, The Nature of Love was presented in the Un certain regard selection at the Cannes Film Festival 2023.
