Synopsis
Actor Gerard Depardieu co-directed (with Frederic Auburtin) this drama about a married woman who falls in love with another man, which stars Depardieu and Carole Bouquet. Mina (Bouquet) is a movie buff with a husband, Georges (Depardieu), who's out of work, and a 15-year-old son, Tommy (Stanislas Crevillen). While Mina works part-time as a domestic for Claire Daboval (Dominique Reymond), the family is terribly short on money, so when Georges is offered construction work on a massive bridge project, he immediately accepts, even though the job site is far enough away that he'll only be able to come home on weekends. One day, while taking in a matinee screening of West Side Story, Mina meets a man named Matthias (Charles Berling), an engineer associated with the bridge project. It's love at first sight for the both of them, and while Mina has no desire to hurt Georges, who is a good and decent man, she has found another good and decent man whom she loves even more. Tommy, on the other hand, has to deal with this crisis in his parents' marriage while he's sorting out his own infatuation with Ms. Daboval's daughter, Lisbeth (Melanie Laurent). ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
