At the end of the 1950s, Rachel, a young office clerk living in a provincial town, meets Philippe, a well-educated man from a wealthy family. They share an intense but short-lived  romance, from  which a daughter is born. Over the next 50 years, their lives will be shaped by the unconditional love between a mother and her daughter, overshadowed by the impossible love of a woman for a man that rejects her, and of a daughter for an absent and abusive father.



Brilliantly dark and tender family drama. A daughter’s life is shaped by her father’s arrogance and her mother’s humility, in Catherine Corsini’s beautiful film

— Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

The acting is terrific. Lead Efira, previously known for lighter material (In Bed With Victoria), shows herself more than capable of a heavyweight dramatic role, subtly maturing from romantic 20s to careworn middle age, while Schneider is unsettling as the mercurial male who exploits his seductive, narcissistic charm to baleful effect.

— Jonathan Romney, ScreenDaily
