Isabelle Huppert, one of France's best actresses, joins forces with Claire Denis (35 Shots of Rum) one of France's best female directors, to bring us perhaps one of the most remarkable films of French cinema.
A coffee plantation owner who against all odds bravely refuses to leave before the harvest. This is all happening the middle of chaos, advancing militia and gratuitous violence. Meanwhile, her husband (Christophe Lambert) cuts a deal with the local mayor, her layabout son goes crazy and a wounded rebel soldier (Isaach De Bankole) seeks refuge in her house from the resurgent army. 
Not to be missed.
