This 2004 portrait of a marriage by French director Francois Ozon (Swimming Pool, 8 Women, Under the Sand) follows the lovers through five stages of their relationship, beginning with divorce and ending with the first sparks of romance. Austere and formally complex, the drama may nevertheless be Ozon's most accessible film due to the attractiveness and vitality of the intelligent couple (Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi and Stephane Freiss), whose actions and pain resonate more deeply as windows open onto their motivations. The narrative power actually increases as the savagery of their love plays out backward through time, charging their final walk into the sunset with a quiet catharsis. In French with subtitles. 90 min.
