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 (12) | Top Critics (2)

Corsini is a film-maker who has always been drawn to the themes of female sexuality and the challenge and transgression that it represents. This is her best picture so far.

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

An intimate, well-played if overstretched family saga.

Nov 13, 2018 | Full Review…

The movie is plausible, tender and vibrant. Efira is excellent as a woman who habitually suffers in silence.

Jan 24, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Corsini's ending is refreshing precisely because it understands that finding sustainable ways to live in the wake of trauma aren't neatly cinched by vengeance.

Jan 24, 2019 | 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.

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

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