Gérard Depardieu is on his best form for years as Alain, the ageing singer with a strong local following and a contented marriage. Then he spies the much younger Marion (Cécile de France) and a mutual infatuation begins. She's an estate agent and the houses she shows him become metaphors for their possible futures. But are his true feelings as sentimental as his songs?


open_quote A gentle, autumnal film, with nice performances from Depardieu and De France close_quote Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
