Film Notes

“Every time you get out in the open, every time you leave those four walls, things become riveting, streets, cafés, restaurants”. Clotilde meets Richard whom she has not seen for a few years and who has been through a divorce. He is taking his two sons to Italy. He suggests she join them with her own son in a house they have taken by the sea. Both this reunion and the holiday prove a disappointment. Maybe she expects things to take a particular turn, but her son’s presence changes the course of things. Is it that he enters into conflict with her? Or is it that he understands her deepest needs?
