"This small, nearly perfect film is a reminder that personal upheavals are as consequential in people’s lives as shattering world events."—New York Times
"The simplest of stories can be elevated by first-rate acting and directing. Mademoiselle Chambon achieves a subtle but devastating effect."—Hollywood Reporter
A surprise arthouse hit in New York (where it has been showing for two months and counting), Mademoiselle Chambon is an elegant, moving tale of an unexpected romance between a married man (Vincent Lindon, from Claire Denis' Friday Night) and his son's homeroom teacher (Sandrine Kiberlain, Lindon's real-life ex-wife)—and their attempt to keep their desires from turning into a full-blown affair. This exquisite French drama recalls David Lean’s Brief Encounter or the films of Eric Rohmer and prompted NPR’s film critic to declare that it contains "some of the best acting I’ve seen all year." (101 mins., 35mm)
