Two women and two men meet and talk, even though they have doubts about the usefulness of such dialogue. In particular they wonder aloud about the fundamental questions that have as their theme love and happiness. Can a loving relationship co-exist with wisdom and intelligence? Can it survive fear and fatigue? With much humour, seriousness and enjoyment, these two men and women, well aware of what is at stake, together try to find the way forward.
Anne-Marie Miéville casts Jean-Luc Godard and makes him say: “I hope you’re not counting on love to make you happy,” to a couple… Filled with literary and philosophical allusions to the likes of Joseph Conrad, Martin Heidegger, Victor Hugo, and Leo Tolstoy, Miéville’s film is equally suffused with warmth and humor as it revisits aspects of the director’s autobiographical and philosophical past.
Anne-Marie Miéville (born 11 November 1945 in Lausanne) is a Swiss filmmaker, principally known for her work in collaboration with her husband Jean-Luc Godard. —Wikipedia
