"Nelly & Monsieur Arnaud"
Directed by Claude Sautet
In this engaging
romance of longing and denial reminiscent of Kieslowski's Red, Emmanuelle Beart
plays Nelly, who is introduced to the wealthy Arnaud (Michel Serrault) and agrees to
transcribe his memoirs. The unlikely couple develop a playful flirtation, which is
complicated by Nelly's involvement with Arnaud's charming editor (Jean-Hugues Anglade).
What follows is a devastating succession of near-misses and might-have-beens that frame
the hesitations and sudden pleasures of unexpected love. "A winning romance!
Exceptionally touching and astonishing" (Gary Arnold, Washington Times).
French with English subtitles.
