Movie Info

At the end of the 1950s, Rachel, a young office clerk living in a provincial town, meets Philippe, a well-educated man from a wealthy family. They share an intense but short-lived romance, from which a daughter is born. 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 and abusive father.

Critic Reviews for An Impossible Love (Un amour impossible)

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (1)

An intimate, well-played if overstretched family saga.

November 13, 2018 | Full Review…

One of the more muted films of Corsini's career, a picture that quilts its fierce political heart with a woolly layer of female martyrdom.

January 6, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

An unbearably sad film dotted with brief glissando-like moments of sweet, sunny reprieve.

January 4, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

There are incidental efforts to offer social-historical comment on France in turbulent times. But it is the characterisation that really holds the attention.

January 4, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It later takes a decidedly darker turn...but the emotional power is consistently undercut by the sense that we, as an audience, are being roundly manipulated.

January 3, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

An Impossible Love is a modern take on melodrama, full of strong moments, approachable storytelling and anchored by a terrific turn from Efira wrapped up in a stinging rebuke of class rejection.
