ON A MAGICAL NIGHT
In Christophe Honoré's (LOVE SONGS, SORRY ANGEL) delightful "Christmas Carol"-eqsue spin on the screwball sex comedy, Maria (Chiara Mastroianni, LOVE SONGS, PRÊT-À-PORTER) is a law professor with a good eye for handsome young men, and no qualms about pursuing them. Richard (Benjamin Biolay, PERSONAL SHOPPER, SOMETHING'S GOTTA GIVE), Maria's husband of 20 years, is less than keen on her extramarital interests, and when he discovers her latest infidelity, it's the last straw. Maria retreats to a hotel across the street where she can gaze down on her apartment and keep an eye on her pained husband. But waiting for her in the room are the ghosts of affairs past — including a 25-year-old version of Richard (Vincent Lacoste, SORRY ANGEL) — ready to take her on a magical journey to reexamine the romances that were and those that could have been. Winner, Best Actress (Chiara Mastroianni), Un Certain Regard, 2019 Cannes Film Festival; Official Selection, 2019 Busan and Chicago film festivals. DIR/SCR Christophe Honoré; PROD Philippe Martin, David Thion. France/Belgium/Luxembourg, 2019, color, 86 min. In French with English subtitles. NOT RATED
