An excellent French drama of a most intense kind. 135 minutes
Director: Catherine Corsini
In 1950s France, Rachel, a young Jewish woman, becomes infatuated by Philippe who is handsome and educated, but also supercilious and casually anti-Semitic. A doomed relationship ensues and he refuses to acknowledge their daughter Chantal. Yet he reappears when the kid is in her teens and entrances her in much the same way as her mother.
