  • Benoît Jacquot, in his fifth collaboration with Isabelle Huppert, drops us into the flurry of events that make up a year in the life of professional musician Ann Hidden.

  • A growing reliance on ellipsis gives the film an episodic style that makes it feel as if we're watching snippets from a long-running series and increasingly it feels like the film has little to say about its subject.

  • Jacquot's film does not pander to the young or inexperienced and requires the viewer to read between the lines.

  • A promising and attractive film from Benoît Jacquot that devolves into an oddly unchallenging arthouse remake of Under the Tuscan Sun.
