Writer Tom (Hawke, understated) arrives in Paris to build bridges with his estranged family, but then his life falls apart – until he meets Margit (Scott Thomas). Some films err by spelling everything out, but Pawlikowski's elegant but baffling feature doesn't offer enough; despite elements of absurdist humour, it's underdeveloped, incomplete and unpersuasive.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
