Synopsis

French-language musical from director Christophe Honoré that follows 40 years in the life of a woman who comes to maturity amidst the political and social turmoil of the 1960s. Ludivine Sagnier plays the young Madeleine, a 1960s shoe store salesgirl who falls in love with a Czech doctor, Jaromil (Radivoje Bukvic). The pair get married and have a child together, but the relationship fails to outlast the decade and Madeleine soon remarries. However, the older Madeleine (played by Catherine Deneuve), is unable to deny that she remains in love with Jaromil. Even worse, the couple's daughter, Véra (Chiara Mastroianni), appears set to repeat the mistakes of her mother by falling hopelessly in love with an unsuitable man...
