Oscar nominee Catherine Deneuve (Indochine) spontaneously decides to sell all her belongings in this French family drama from Julie Bertuccelli.

"Each object brings into focus memories of her colourful life. Concerned about her mother’s behaviour, Claire’s estranged daughter (Chiara Mastroianni, Persepolis) returns home, but the reunion is freighted with the weight of the past." (Chicago International Film Festival)

In the end, it seems like a film in thrall to the attractions of its design with Deneuve cast as the décor's photogenic centrepiece.
