Sandra spends her days working as a freelance translator, being an attentive single mother to her eight-year-old daughter, and caring for her father, a retired philosophy professor slowly losing his sight, memory, and independence to a neurodegenerative disorder. In everything she does, Sandra is bright, patient, energetic – and utterly exhausted. Despite her beauty and charisma, she cannot help but feel her love life is behind her, until she runs into her old friend Clément, a cosmochemist with a son he adores and a marriage that he fears may be losing its spark. Sandra and Clément become lovers. Their time together seems blissful and easy, even as every other aspect of their affair feels frustratingly complicated and filled with heartache.

The captivating elegance of Hansen-Løve’s approach arises from the trust she places in her fully developed characters and her refusal to infuse any one event in their lives with artificial drama. (source:
