ONE FINE MORNING (UN BEAU MATIN)

California Premiere


MIND THE GAP | WORLD

France 2022, 112 min, Director: Mia Hansen-Løve

Even more moving for eschewing excess drama, writer-director Mia Hansen-Løve’s subtle film is a bittersweet exploration of how the vicissitudes of fate and the passage of time shape identities. Sandra (Léa Seydoux), a translator and single mom, shares responsibility with her sister and mother for her father, a former philosophy professor (Pascal Greggory) suffering from a neurodegenerative disease. Moving between visits with her dad, her work, and time with her daughter, she encounters an old friend, Clément (Melvil Poupaud). When their platonic relationship gives way to romantic desire, Sandra rediscovers a part of herself, but their future remains uncertain. Cinematographer Denis Lenoir’s limpid 35mm cinematography effectively captures the breezy Paris parks, light-filled apartments, city streets, and bleak institutional interiors the characters navigate, and beautifully complements Hansen-Løve’s ability to evoke the changing seasons and rhythms of daily life. —Kate MacKay
