Welcome to the second review of Mia Hansen-Løve retrospective with tonight’s movie Things to Come (L’Avenir/Začať odznova) with famous French actress Isabelle Huppert – French movie with Czech subtitles =)
Natalie is a philosophy teacher in a Parisian high school. She is managing her busy life from her side publishing occupation, her moody and invasive mother, grown up kids and cold husband, and her special relationship with one of her former student. Until one day she finds herself in a position of total freedom and have to make the most of this new experience.
As always, besides characters who fight for their beliefs, Mia Hansen-Løve is picturing a strong and independent woman – this time at an older age time – facing break-up, failure and death, but who still take control of her own destiny and is definitely looking for things to come.
