Lionel, a train engineer, shares an apartment with his daughter Jo, a university student. In the same building live taxi driver Gabrielle and a young man who comes and goes, Noe. Together, they are a kind of family. We figure out their roles and relationships only gradually as Denis leaves crumbs along her narrative path for us to follow—it’s one of the great pleasures of this extraordinarily pleasurable film made up of small moments, of looks and silences, of magical touches of physicality and pensiveness. „Claire Denis has created a sensual and contemplative body of films over the years, but nothing in her work prepares us for this deeply emotional yet light-of-touch story set among a small circle of Parisians and their friends.” (Judy Bloch)

Screening in French, without any subtitle and with Hungarian voice-over translation!
