LADIES and BEAUX HOMMES fans; this film gives us the lovely Léa Seydoux, in one of her best performances of the year in #OneFineMorning. The film is a complex and very human story. It’s about the relationships we’ll all have with aging parents. What we must sacrifice in order to be good offspring and tend to their life needs as they age. Even in an industrialized society, like France, with means, the struggle is still there and takes a toll on one’s relationships. Especially the romantic ones. But Léa Seydoux’s character loves and cares for her father, while life throws her some surprises. A wonderful French film for those who want strong stories about real situations.
Kisses from PARIS!
