Fr, 2017, 135 mins, French dialogue with subtitles
A film director finds his life in turmoil when a woman appears who claims to be his wife who disappeared 20 years earlier and he thought dead. A jubilantly complex tale within a tale that’s a sometimes serious, sometimes funny story that never lets up or becomes predictable.
