Based on the autobiographical 2015 book by French writer Christine Angot, ‘Un Amour Impossible’ tells the harrowing story of a crumbling, abusive relationship and the child who emerges from it. As tender as it is provocative, this film is sure to intrigue viewers and inspire discussion about feminism, fidelity, and trust. Both epic and intimate at once, ‘Un Amour Impossible’ follows Rachel and Philippe through 50 years of their lives (the actors eventually required 7 hours of makeup daily) as they navigate the tangled web of life. Expertly directed, filmed on-location in Paris, and featuring a star-making performance by Virginie Efira, ‘Un Amour Impossible’ is simply one for the ages. Don’t miss it on December 13 – our last show of 2018 – with English subtitles in the presence of the director herself!
At the end of the 1950s, Rachel, a young office clerk living in a provincial town, meets Philippe, a well-educated man from a wealthy family. They share an intense but short-lived romance, from which a daughter is born. Over the next 50 years, their lives will be shaped by the unconditional love between a mother and her daughter, overshadowed by the impossible love of a woman for a manipulative man who harbors dark intentions.
« This is the most accomplished and ambitious film to date from a director who has frequently explored female themes from a committed gender-politics perspective, but also employing an approachable mainstream art-house aesthetic. »
