Summary

A love story that has bewitched audiences and critics worldwide, MADEMOISELLE CHAMBON delicately captures the initial stirrings of romance. Vincent Lindon plays Jean, a burly and happily married housing contractor. One fateful afternoon, he picks up his son (Arthur Le Houérou) from school and meets the teacher, a willowy beauty named Mademoiselle Chambon (Sandrine Kiberlain). Their flirtation slowly builds over lingering glances and an impromptu violin solo in Chambon's apartment. Like the classical music they swoon over, their relationship builds through subtle movements: the tilt of a head or an inadvertent brush of the cheek fills their hearts with longing. Jean soon comes to a crossroads, having to choose between the intensity of his bond with Chambon or the responsibility and care he feels for his wife (Aure Atika) and child. An evocation of what it feels like to fall dizzyingly in love, MADEMOISELLE CHAMBON won the César (the French Academy Award®) for Best Adapted Screenplay and is an unqualified triumph for director Stéphane Brizé.
