New This Week: Touch, a decades-spanning Icelandic romance rated 96% Fresh!

🇫🇷 Auteur Catherine Breillat's honest look at a messy illicit relationship

Anne, a brilliant lawyer, lives in perfect harmony with her husband Pierre and their six and eight-year-old daughters, in a house on the heights of Paris. One day, Théo, 17, Pierre’s son from a previous marriage, moves in with them. Anne is troubled by Théo and gradually engages in a passionate relationship with him, putting her career and family life in danger.

Here, after a nearly two-decade dry spell, is the comeback we’ve been wanting from director Catherine Breillat: a film… that confronts the complicated, impulsive and all-too-often-regrettable choices humans make when desire takes control.

Variety

By Catherine Breillat’s standards, this is an unprecedentedly sleek commercial play, alluring and grabby — yet with an innate, considered nastiness, an unspoken intellectualisation of our least explicable instincts, that never feels compromised.
