Directed by Diane Kurys

France 2013 110 mins.

Inspired by her own family history, Kurys’s (Sagan, Peppermint Soda) handsome drama moves between post-World War II France and the 1980s, where novelist Anne (Sylvie Testud) goes on a quest to understand the past. Equipped with recently discovered letters and photos, she begins to shed light on the tangled relationship between her parents and a mysterious uncle, thought dead, who appeared on their doorstep in 1947 Lyon.
