Just a Sigh

Synopsis

Just a Sigh (Le temps de l’aventure) by Jérôme Bonnell (France, 2013, 100 min.). A chance encounter on a train between an actress and a British traveler offers the possibility of a true romance. Alix’s (Emmanuelle Devos) erratic behavior pairs well with the quiet stoicism of the unnamed Brit (Gabriel Byrne). Shifting in tone from drama to romantic comedy, Devos and Byrne anchor the film with strong performances that adapt to the circumstances of each the scene. Set over the course of a single day, the film’s varied emotions pair nicely with the setting as they wander Paris during World Music Day.
