Just a Sigh

In the short break between performances in Calais, stage actress Alix, played by the stunning Emmanuelle Devos (Desplechin’s Christmas Tale), makes a quick escape to Paris. On the train, she meets a mysterious English stranger. Drawn toward him, she follows him, loves him, for a few hours, before facing what could be a new life. With masterful performances by Devos and her acclaimed co-star Gabriel Byrne, Just a Sigh is an imaginative and lushly filmed Parisian romance. Young and versatile director Jérôme Bonnell (Le Chignon d’Olga) tells a real-time story with a particular sense for detail. Reminiscent of François Truffaut’s The Woman Next Door, the film captures vivid insights of a burning love evolving between two characters, wonderfully brought together by Bonnell’s down-to-earth approach. Just a Sigh captures an irrational, sentimental encounter balanced between the extremes of elopement and routine, with breathtaking psychological intrigue. Frederic Boyer - Tribeca Film Festival

A film by Jerome Bonnell
Starring Emmanuelle Devos, Gabriel Byrne

" A contemporary Gallic “Brief Encounter.” Beautifully acted! Intimate and persuasive!" (...) " The chemistry between Ms. Devos and Mr. Byrne is heated in a sadder-but-wiser, grown-up way."

-The New York Times (Critics Pick)

"Psychologically stimulating, and unequivocally artistic! (..) If you’re looking for a change from your everyday film choices, then this film is wonderful."

-HOOTMAG.ORG

"Admirably written, delicately directed, this "Boy meets girl" also adds a realistic portrait of a woman, in the crossroad of her life."

-Le Monde

"Emmanuelle Devos - pricky, vulnerable, maddening and touching - reigns supreme."
