The paths of three siblings in their 40's collide when their mother, heiress to a 19th century art collection, dies suddenly. Left to come to terms with one another, Adrienne, a successful New York designer, Frédéric, an economist in Paris, and Jérémie, a business man in China, confront their shared memories and their vision of the future. An absorbing, beautifully photographed and moving film from Olivier Assayas, featuring exceptional performances from the three leads.
A thoughtful and moving French country-set family drama which deals with art, history and inheritance.
