Review

A star rating of 4 out of 5.

It's said love conquers all and Italian debutant Filippo Meneghetti reveals the lengths to which one woman is prepared to go after her beloved suffers a debilitating stroke. Neighbours Nina (Barbara Sukowa) and Madeleine (Martine Chevallier) have been clandestine lovers for decades. But Madeleine can't break the news about their imminent move to Rome to her grown-up children (Léa Drucker and Jérôme Varanfrain). Sukowa excels as the seventy-something who has sacrificed everything and refuses to be left with nothing, and it proves fascinating to watch her resentment turning to resourcefulness. Her tense dealings with the live-in carer (Muriel Bénazéraf) are worthy of French film-maker Claude Chabrol (although his ending would have been thornier). But it's the way Meneghetti captures flickers of unspoken affection that makes this delicate chamber drama so compelling and poignant.
