The always-enchanting Audrey Tautou stars as Nathalie, a hard-working woman with a beloved husband (Pio Marmaï) and what seems like a comfortable future. But big life changes ensue, and Nathalie finds herself alone, and eventually in an unlikely relationship with a co-worker from Sweden, Markus (François Damiens). Their relationship proves to be funny and charming to watch. Tautou is always effortlessly wonderful in this sort of thing, and Damiens’ portrayal of a man who can’t believe his luck—yet also fears the responsibility of being in love—is one for the time capsule. The movie is great because it doesn’t follow any obvious paths. I was struck by all of its surprises, and won over by the love stories. Prepare to be charmed.
