Catherine Deneuve stars in this agreeable character study… Her travels lead her to reconnect with her estranged daughter and grandson—and, predictably, her joie de vivre. This isn’t as sentimental as it might sound; Deneuve, fine as always, subtly emphasizes the character’s self-destructive side, providing a little medicine to help the sugar go down, and cowriter-director Emmanuelle Bercot (an actress herself) maintains a fluid pace that distracts from the schematic plotting.

It manages to be a mildly merry film in any case, because its realism is patient and inclusive, from the country bar full of harmless lager-drunk yahoos to the extended scene with an ancient, swollen-fingered man trying to roll a smoke for Deneuve’s nicotine-desperate heroine. (Moments like these feel improvised by locals.) In the end, we’re not paid off with a moral but merely with time spent in the remarkably humble company of, as Film Comment put it on their cover last year, Her Majesty.
