From the director of IRMA VEP and DEMONLOVER

French filmmaking sensation Olivier Assayas' follow-up to his much-loved Irma Vep centers on a cadre of thirty-something Parisians coming to grips with romantic uncertainty, professional upheaval and the looming spectre of their own mortality. Loosely connected by their friendship with older writer Adrien (Francois Cluzet), Gabriel (My Sex Life's Mathieu Amalric), Anne (8 Women's Virginie Ledoyen), Jenny (Va Savoir's Jeanne Balibar) and Jeremie (Lumumba's Alex Descas) are all profoundly affected by his seemingly unthinkable yet inevitable death. As Assayas' famously agile camera keenly observes his characters as they traverse their tangled lives, he charts their road to hard-won understanding with a mixture of rigor and tenderness. With a stellar soundtrack featuring Ali Farka Toure and Sonic Youth.
