Storyline

Nathalie teaches philosophy at a high school in Paris. She is passionate about her job and particularly enjoys passing on the pleasure of thinking.

With freedom thrust upon her, Nathalie must reinvent her life.

Did You Know?

Trivia

Shortly before Nathalie goes to watch a movie there is a shot of Constance Rousseau who played the lead role in Mia Hansen-Løve's debut film. Hansen-Løve said she originally intended the shot to be of Félix de Givry who starred in her previous film, but she thought it would be too distracting to include him. See more »

Goofs

Nathalie is shown walking through the mud flats exposed along the beach at low tide. As she walks, she is clearly following footprints. Since the mud was previously underwater, the footprints must be from a previous take of Isabelle Huppert walking along the same path. See more »

Quotes

Nathalie Chazeaux: Julie is recalling her former passion, unrequited with SaintPreux . She had hope to know true bliss with him and this hope made her happy, Julie can then be happy substituting dream for reality.

A load of pretentious rubbish
6 May 2017 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Another French film that should/ could have been great. Stilted dialogue about Philosophy. And how come if the French [ who I love, their country, their culture, their history , their language etc ] generally always have English/American songs on their soundtrack when they are so pedantic about keeping the French language ''pure''.....I couldn't wait for it to finish [ as did my partner ]
