Synopsis

Philip is a famous American writer living in exile in London. His mistress comes regularly to see him in his office, a refuge for the two lovers. They make love, argue, reconcile, and talk for hours—about the women who mark out his life, sex, antisemitism, literature, and remaining true to oneself.

Our take

Prior to his return to Cannes this year, Arnaud Desplechin brings a seductive blend of intellectual and carnal passions to his riveting adaptation of Phillip Roth’s eponymous novel. A mesmerizing, literary concoction of sex, love, and loyalty made bewitching by Léa Seydoux’s luminous performance.
