A small village in the south of France is weathering the difficult postwar years. A girl named Gabrielle (Marion Cotillard) dreams of real love, but those around her consider her obsession improper and even insane. Her parents marry her to a Spanish farmer, José, and Gabrielle’s life takes on the appearance of a prison sentence. One day, she is sent to a sanatorium in the Alps, where she falls hopelessly in love with a wounded Vietnam veteran, André (Louis Garrel). Together, they plan to escape and start a new life.

Nicole Garcia’s romantic drama, based on the classic novel by Italian writer Milena Agus. The film was nominated for a Palme d’Or.
