  • Two adults struggle to avoid letting their erotic passion for one another guide them into infidelity in this subtly erotic, understated chamber drama from France. Vincent Lindon stars as Jean, a burly blue-collar mason who lives semi-contentedly with his wife, Anne-Marie (Aure Atika), and son, Jrmy (Arthur Le Hourou), in some unspecified provincial French town. Little passion exists in Jean's life -- until his path crisscrosses with that of Vronique Chambon (Sandrine Kiberlain), his son's violin teacher. Completely taken with the woman's cultural sophistication (manifested through her love of classical music) and intellectualism, Jean begins contemplating an affair with this virtual stranger, and offers to repair one of her windows as an excuse to be more proximate to her. Ultimately, suspense begins to build as the question lingers of whether the two will give in to their desires. Stphane Briz directed and authored the script, an adaptation of Eric Holder's novel.

  • Critic Reviews
    "[With] beautifully intimate cinematography....By the end, the question of whether familial responsibility or passionate spontaneity will win out is genuinely suspenseful."
    Film Comment

    "[An] exquisitely acted film....The performances by Mr. Lindon and Ms. Kiberlain, who were once married, are so completely lived-in that you feel that you may know them intimately..."
    New York Times

    3 stars out of 5 -- "MADEMOISELLE CHAMBON offers the kind of intimate, naturalistic look at human interaction that recalls the heyday of Eric Rohmer."
    Box Office

    "[D]eeply moving....An exquisite chamber piece made with the kind of sensitivity and nuance that's become almost a lost art."
    Los Angeles Times
