An Impossible Love (15)

An Impossible Love

Un Amour Impossible


Set over several decades, this account of a passionate romance and the profoundly dysfunctional family relationships it trails in its wake is based on a 2015 novel by French writer Christine Angot.


At the end of the 1950s, Rachel (Virginie Efira), a young office clerk living in a provincial town, meets Philippe (Niels Schneider), a well-educated man from a wealthy family. They share an intense but short-lived romance, from which a daughter is born – Chantal (played by four actresses over four stages of her life). Over the next 50 years, their lives will be shaped by the unconditional love between a mother and her daughter, overshadowed by the impossible love of a woman for a man that rejects her, and of a daughter for an absent father. Belgian actress Efira (‘Victoria’, ‘Elle’) is a stand-out, and ably supported by Schneider. (Subtitles)
