Movie Info

Juliette Binoche delivers a luminous performance in the deliciously witty, sensuously romantic new film from acclaimed director Claire Denis (White Material). Isabelle (Binoche) is a divorced Parisian painter searching for another shot at love, but refusing to settle for the parade of all-too-flawed men who drift in and out of her life. There's a caddish banker (Xavier Beauvois) who, like many of her lovers, happens to be married; a handsome actor (Nicolas Duvauchelle) who's working through his own hang-ups; and a sensitive fellow artist (Alex Descas) who's skittish about commitment. What reads like a standard romantic comedy premise is transformed, in the hands of master filmmaker Denis, into something altogether deeper, more poignant, and perceptive about the profound mysteries of love.

All Critics (139) | Top Critics (36) | Fresh (120) | Rotten (19)

  • The flirty fizz of the genre comes with a shot of top-shelf pathos; the laughs are few and the sighs are heavy.

    February 14, 2020 | Full Review…
  • What director Claire Denis and her co-screenwriter Christine Angot clearly set out to do... is to present a stinging diatribe against the awfulness of dating and the scarcity of decent, sensitive men. And on that level, it succeeds spectacularly.

    October 17, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Although there's certainly never been any doubt as to the range of La Binoche, the performer shoulders the entire fragile frame of the narrative with stunning aplomb, walking a fine line between relatability and unhinged desperado of amour fou.

    October 10, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Frustrated or not, [Juliette] Binoche shines bright in this film.

    August 8, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Juliette Binoche is typically terrific in what proves to be a middling effort from esteemed writer-director Claire Denis.

    June 2, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Stay open to life, never close down. To me, Let The Sunshine In seems a great film.
