Mia Hansen-Løve made her feature debut with this sensitive chronicle of estrangement, redemption, and the indissoluble parent-child bond. Victor (Paul Blain) adores his wife Annette (Marie-Christine Friedrich) and their young daughter Pamela (Victoire Rousseau), but his self-loathing and addiction take their toll and the family disintegrates. A decade later, Pamela, now a young woman (played by Rousseau’s older sister Constance), returns to Paris where Victor still resides, opening the door to a possible reconciliation. Hansen-Løve eschews bathos at every turn, presenting her story in fragments consistent with the nature of memory. Her efforts earned her a César nomination for Best First Film.
