A partnership between director Cédric Klapisch and London-based Israeli choreographer Hofesh Shechter who appears as himself — the film focusses on real dancers really dancing. There are no body doubles and no illusions. Élise (Marion Barbeau) is a talented ballet dancer whose life is turned upside down – by an injury and then when she catches her boyfriend cheating on her with her understudy. On a path to physical and emotional recovery, she travels from Paris to Brittany, where she embraces the artistic freedom of contemporary dance and new ways to reinvent herself. A heartwarming and inspiring story that tells how sometimes, the worst thing that could happen may turn out to be the best.
Barbeau’s presence is nothing short of a star-making turn. – The Guardian
