Let The Sunshine In

A divorced woman is looking desperately for love, for the slightest romance or a spark of passion in the city of Paris that seems to have forgotten how to mate. But what are the chances for her to find what she’s looking for amongst a cynical banker that courts her persistently, a charming but insecure actor, her ex husband and an unexpected flirt.

The lightest and most delightful Claire Denis’ film, where even the most serious situations are embellished with humor. An impressive cast (Gerard Depardieu, Josiane Balasko, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi and Sandrine Dumas) in unexpected performances – take notice of one of Juliette Binoche’s greatest performances. The film won an award at the Directors’ Fortnight at 2017 Cannes Film Festival.
