Movie Info

In this drama, two people discover that it's not as simple as they thought to have a purely sexual relationship. A man and woman in their early 40s (Nathalie Baye and Sergi Lopez), are introduced to each other through a personal ad and agree to meet once a week for a sexual liaison. The meetings are meant to be exciting but impersonal; they agree that they won't exchange names or ask questions about their lives outside this relationship. They also don't engage in convention, though we're never

AN AFFAIR OF LOVE is that rare and much sought-after commodity, -- an adult love story presented with intelligence and craftsmanship.

A refreshingly mature look at sexuality: these are people over 30 enjoying active sex lives and able to intelligently examine their actions and the consequences.

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

Committed performances and a teasing structure give weight to this minor enterprise.

What made this movie so wonderful was the little details.

Baye is left stranded, a performance too strong for a film this slight to contain.

If the film moved off its experimental mode and let us see the couple without the conditions the ground rules imposed on them, this might have been an even much better film.

It's a wonderfully touching film with a big and slightly bittersweet heart.

It's a modest film but rich with observation and unspoken regret, and the texture of their performances bring it to life.

Belgian director Frédéric Fonteyne's second feature is a short but ultimately tedious affair.

In a movie that bets the farm on delicate balancing, An Affair of Love comes close but doesn't quite strike the needed equilibriums.
