Synopsis

Isabelle (Juliette Binoche) is a divorced Parisian painter with a 10-year-old daughter. She's searching for another shot at love, but each man she lets into her life is more horrible than the last.

There's a portly banker (Xavier Beauvois) who, like many of her lovers, happens to be married; a handsome actor (Nicolas Duvauchelle) who's working through his own hang-ups; and a sensitive fellow artist (Alex Descas) who's skittish about commitment. She finally tries to get help from a love psychic (Gérard Depardieu).

  • 4 stars "Serious, absorbing, even compelling, this is mature filmmaking for an audience that values character and thought over crashes and explosions, true-to-life ambivalence over a contrived happy ending. It is paced for a patient movie lover, not for one who needs fast speed and loud noises."
  • 1 star "Very slow moving. Although Juliette Binoche is a wonderful actress, the film was extremely slow. Binoche suffers through relationship after relationship in an excruciating search for self-worth. Her "beau soleil interieur," as it is titled in French is brought to light by the final male savior of the film, Gerard Depardieu. An interminable 1 hour and 36 minutes."
