Recommended. Since it is based on a true story, one has to put up with some of the twists and turns which don't follow copy book style script writing. The acting by Adel Haenel is captivating, although the others including Catherine Deneuve, are less than memorable.

Agnès Le Roux, a young independent woman, returns to Nice in 1976 to have a new start in her life after a failed marriage. All while falling in love with an older lawyer.

It may help to know that this film is based on an endless French judicial affair that dates back to the 1970s and whose latest development (denial of yet another appeal) came in July of this year! Thus this complex story is familiar to the French, who are the movie's primary audience. The film thankfully simplifies the twists and turns of the story by concentrating on the triangular relationship at the origin of the affair, not on the subsequent saga in the courts (though there is one courtroom scene that will leave you wondering about rules of evidence in the French judicial system). The acting is good all around, but Guillaume Canet stands out as 'the man who was loved too much'. Adèle Haenel has the hardest role as the emotionally fragile gal who can't let him go. Worth seeing even though many may feel unsatisfied with the voice-over ending.
