One Fine Morning
Families, lovers and artists are familiar terrain for French auteur Mia Hansen-Løve. Here she gifts us a finely-tuned, quietly contemplative portrait - co-produced by UK-based distributor MUBI - of a single mother contending with a new relationship and an ailing father. Lea Seydoux is radiant, the script wry and at times achingly sad, and Paris sparkles in the sunshine.
Single mother and translator Sandra (Lea Seydoux) raises her eight-old-year daughter in Paris, while simultaneously caring for her dementia-afflicted father. When a past acquaintance comes back into her life, she finds herself at a crossroads.
