About One Fine Morning
Léa Seydoux stars as a young mother who juggles her job as a translator with the responsibilities of caring for her eight-year-old daughter and ailing father.
Her busy life is further complicated when a chance encounter with an old friend who is stuck in an unhappy marriage leads to a passionate affair. Based on her own life experience, Mia Hansen-Løve’s tender and deceptively simple drama examines the complexities of life, family and relationships with great charm and insight.
Dir: Mia Hansen-Løve

In French with subtitles
a quietly thoughtful and ultimately life-affirming portrait of the strange interaction between loss and rebirth. It’s a miraculous balancing act that pretty much took my breath away
