This buoyant French comedy from filmmaker Charline Bourgeoise-Tacquet follows a free-spirited, 30-something woman in her search for stability. Behind on her rent and her thesis, Anais searches for inspiration while hurtling through lovers with abandon. Things get especially crazy when she falls in love with the wife of a book publisher she had been seeing. This effervescent, cliche-shattering feature debut weaves a tale of self-discovery as literate as it is unexpected, keeping viewers and Anais off-balance until the final scene.

Critic’s Pick! While beauty is her most obvious attribute, Anais has a sharp mind, an impertinent tongue and, crucially, the unsettled, inchoate yearning that draws the eye, stokes the imagination and has long fueled heroic quests. She is, in other words, a 21st-century human being who, in finding herself on her own stubborn, singular, unquiet terms, has ditched the usual script about men, women, pleasure and desire. – The New York Times
