Suzanne (Kristin Scott Thomas) and her husband Samuel (Yvan Attal) enjoy a pleasant, middle-class life with their two children. When she decides to go back to work as a physiotherapist, Suzanne is brought into contact with a builder called Ivan (Sergi Lopez), a tough yet down-to-earth odd-job man who has recently been released from prison. Their mutual attraction is sudden and violent, sending them on a whirlwind affair of the senses. As Suzanne's life spirals out of control, she must decide between her family and living this all-engulfing passion to the full.

A triumph for Kristin - but what about the rest of the film? - Leaving review by Tim from London

Spoiler Alert
27/09/2011

First things first. Kristin Scott Thomas is wonderful, and clearly the director loves her. The trouble is that her performance overshadows the rest of the film and the other (male) characters who feel underdeveloped and half baked in comparison. Thus, we never quite understand her obsession with the dull and wooden Sergi Lopez. Her husband is just a pantomime villain and needed to be more sympathetic for the film to work more effectively. Having said that, it is worth seeing for the lead performance alone, and it is

an OK retelling of Lady Chatterley's lover - but a warning, the plot gets very silly towards the end.
