Lushly indulgent, and filled with an atmosphere of neurosis, this French drama brings acting excellence to the fore. Widowed film director, Ismael (Almaric), who is in the middle of making a film about an atypical diplomat inspired by his brother, has started a new life with Sylvia (Gainsbourg), though he still mourns the death of former lover, Carlotta (Cotillard), who passed away 20 years earlier. When Carlotta returns from the dead, anticipated frictions arise, and Ismael is torn apart.
