, and now working with Stéphane Brizé for the third time, following on from The Measure of a Man and At War), the story revolves around 57-year-old Philippe Lemesle whose wife is in the process of leaving him. She’s going because the man she loves has slowly allowed himself to be consumed by the pressure of his job.

For the record, Stéphane Brizé has twice competed in Cannes (via The Measure of a Man in 2015 and At War in 2018), with his filmography also including works along the lines of Hometown Blue (Directors’ Fortnight 1999), Not Here to be Loved [+leggi anche:
