The mesmerising Charlotte Rampling brings an intelligent intensity to the role of a woman whose ageing husband has been jailed.
This is the intimate portrait of a woman's loss of identity as she teeters between denial and reality. Left alone grappling with the consequences of her husband's (André Wilms) imprisonment, Hannah (Rampling) begins to unravel. Ostracised by family members, neighbours hurl abuse through her door, even her gym membership, bizarrely, is suddenly revoked.
Through the exploration of her fractured sense of identity and loss of self-control, the film investigates modern day alienation, the struggle to connect, and the dividing lines between individual identity, personal relationships, and societal pressures. Rampling was awarded the Volpi cup for Best Actress at the Venice Film Festival for this wondrous performance. (Some Subtitles)
