In this Parisian bittersweet romance from Cédric Klapisch, warehouse employee Rémy and research assistant Mélanie have never met, but they live parallel lives: they reside in neighboring apartment buildings, ride the same subway route, and are troubled by bouts of insomnia and depression. Their days punctuated by unfulfilling jobs, they seek meaningful romantic and platonic connection. As they stumble through psychotherapy, dating apps, fainting spells, and family visits, the seemingly star-crossed duo orbit around each other but remain just out of reach. Klapisch spins a delicate “what-if” from their compartmentalization, exploring our increasingly hermetic modern urban life.
“[Klapish has] this singular knack for examining with SENSITIVITY and DETAIL the relationship highs and lows of the 40-and-under crowd”— VARIETY
