Film Description


Another Woman's Life
La Vie d’une Autre

The feature directorial debut of actress Sylvie Testud (Lourdes) sees Juliette Binoche as Marie, a young woman who meets and spends the night with Paul (Mathieu Kassovitz). When she wakes up, she discovers that 15 years have passed of which she has no memory, and in which time she has acquired an impressive career, a son and a marriage to Paul which seems headed for divorce. While there is much humour in Binoche adapting to the minutiae of modern life, the film is essentially a cautionary tale of how easily one can become distracted from one’s most important relationships.


"Testud bolsters her story with strong performances from both Kassovitz and Binoche, with the latter providing a joyful and convincing depiction of a sheep in wolf’s clothing." - Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter
