Director Claire Denis / 2008 / France

<p><strong>“Smoother than the finest liquor, reminds viewers how rarely movies capture the easygoing love embodied in a functional family, with all its support and tenderness.” - <em>Variety</em></strong><em></em></p>

<p>Claire Denis (<em>Beau travail</em>, MIFF 2000; <em>Trouble Every Day</em>, MIFF 03) paints a nuanced portrait of a shifting relationship between a father and daughter in this tender drama set in the suburbs of Paris.</p>

<p>Train driver Lionel lives alone with his daughter Josephine in their quiet apartment building. As they move through the rhythm of their daily lives, they share a closeness with one another that borders on perfect harmony.</p>

<p>But slowly things begin to change, and the time for holding onto the past is coming to an end.</p>

<p>Director Claire Denis is a guest of the Festival.</p>
