One Fine Morning

This event has passed

Living in a small Parisian apartment, Sandra (Léa Seydoux) is barely able to support herself and her eight-year-old daughter Linn as a freelance translator. As her father Georg (Pascal Greggory) continues to lose his sight and memory from Benson’s syndrome, Sandra must navigate the labyrinthine system of national care homes, with all their financial burdens and logistical nightmares.

As her entire life begins to revolve around her banal obligations, Sandra has a chance encounter with an old friend, Clément (Melvil Poupaud), which blossoms into a passionate affair. After experiencing her daily life for so long as a series of duties and responsibilities towards others, Sandra attempts to reconcile her role as mother and caretaker to her nascent love affair with Clément, feeling almost guilty at the sudden, unexpected burst of love and happiness as her father’s condition worsens. In her intimate, thoughtful exploration through the fragile vagaries of love—romantic, filial, domestic—Mia Hansen-Løve (Things to Come, Bergman Island), delivers another poignant, personal film that resonates long after it ends.

Seydoux’s performance anchors the film, ultimately rendering it a love letter to the present, and to the ways heartbreak and hope intertwine.”—Alissa Wilkinson, Vox
