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 (90) | Top Critics (23)

Denis's foray into the often-goofy world of the rom-com is at once a cold bath of realism and a bewitching portrait of the power of love.

Denis instinctively knows what will draw us in - for most of the movie it's Binoche's face, so inviting, eager to soak up everything around her.

Tilt it one way, and "Let the Sunshine In" becomes a dramatic portrait of a woman's sensual restlessness. Tilted the other way, it's a bittersweet romantic comedy.

A multifaceted, bittersweet delight.

May 10, 2018 | Full Review…

A dry, lightly sad, and very French comedy of romantic neurosis, brought to us by two great artists, director Claire Denis and star Juliette Binoche.

It's Binoche, here delivering one of her finest and most subtly calibrated performances, who imbues Isabelle with the heart and earthy eroticism that makes her far more appealing, even heroic, than the pathetic figure she might have been.
