A coeur ouvert

Mila and Javier, both renowned surgeons and both passionate about their work, have been madly in love for the past 10 years. They have always taken great care to preserve their extraordinary love for each other and refuse to succumb to the routine of everyday living. But Mila’s unexpected pregnancy, combined with increasing pressure from work at the hospital, drives Javier to drink more heavily and he ends up being suspended. Faced with his demons, Javier drifts further and further away from Mila. Yet, when their relationship is under serious threat, Javier is ready to do whatever it takes to win Mila back.

La passion, la dépendance amoureuse, sont filmés de manière sensuelle par la réalisatrice (...) Juliette Binoche se montre à la fois légère et habitée, et Edgar Ramirez remarquable. Si ce n'est une fin curieuse, on aime ce " coeur ouvert ", romantique en diable” – Le Parisien
