The film recounts with Bressonian sobriety the story of a family coping with the imminent death of their mother. As she slips away from life, she confronts her 34-year relationship with her philandering, alcoholic husband, and comforts her dutiful and affectionate but feckless son, who searches for release from his anguish in anonymous sex. Nathalie Baye is quietly wrenching as the daughter-in-law. (cinema.ucla.edu)
