Mademoiselle Chambon B+
Made with exquisite taste and attention to detail, Stéphane Brizé's Mademoiselle Chambon stars Vincent Lindon (La Moustache) and Sandrine Kiberlain (Très Bien, Merci), once a real off-screen couple, in an emotionally touching love story.
The movie won the César (the French Oscar) for best Adapted Screenplay, co-written by Stéphane Brizé and Florence Vignon.
The DVD and Blu-ray editions contain never-before-seen interview with director Stéphane Brizé as well as deleted scenes, each with an introduction by film critic Stéphane Goudet.
Vincent Lindon plays Jean, a burly and happily married housing contractor. One fateful afternoon, he picks up his son (Arthur Le Houérou) from school and meets the teacher, a willowy beauty named Mademoiselle Chambon (Sandrine Kiberlain).
Their flirtation slowly builds over lingering glances and an impromptu violin solo in Chambon's apartment. Like the classical music they swoon over, their relationship builds through subtle movements: the tilt of a head, or an inadvertent brush of the cheek, fills their hearts with longing. Jean soon comes to a crossroads, having to choose between the intensity of his bond with Chambon or the responsibility and care he feels for his wife (Aure Atika) and child.
