On television tonight and in streaming / replay on ARTE: L’Avenir (2016) by Mia Hansen-Løve with Isabelle Huppert, André Marcon, Roman Kolinka, Édith Scob and Sarah Le Picard. Bulles de Culture’s opinion on this award-winning drama in Berlin and rebroadcast from Wednesday February 24, 2021.
Philosophy teacher in a Parisian high school, Nathalie, a forty-something mother of two grown-up teens, exercises her profession with passion. Driven by a taste for study and the pleasure of transmitting, she is disconcerted by the lightning strike that paralyzes her establishment.
Facing repeated requests from her aging mother, she juggles a multitude of activities on a daily basis, especially for a publishing house with which she has worked for several years.
Her discovery of the infidelity of Heinz, her husband also a teacher, who cheated on her with a woman younger than her, and her reunion with Fabien, one of her former students now normalien, will reshuffle the cards of an existence she thought was all mapped out.
Excerpt from Bulles de Culture’s review of the feature film L’Avenir, written when it was released in cinemas:
In L’Avenir, Isabelle Huppert once again takes on the role of a tormented bourgeois. Used to strong, subversive and torn characters, (…) here it is however more subtle. Mia Hansen-Løve takes the time to film the emotional void that surrounds her protagonist as soon as she is freed from everything, a subject repeatedly mentioned in her previous films.
(…) But at the end of the film, the director is careful not to give us the keys to the salvation of her character.
