"Depardieu and Huppert are magnetic."" - The New York Times
One evening Nelly meets Loulou, a down-and-out young man. After her husband kicks her out, she goes off to live with Loulou. She is soon with child, but Loulou doesn't change his wayward life, spending time with his pals and pulling off small-time robberies. Deeply hurt by his attitude, Nelly decides not to keep the baby.
THE MOUTH AGAPE:
When cancer strikes the mother of a French family, everyone in the family expresses a previously invisible caring and tolerance of the others. The father has always been a bit of a drunk and is forever chasing younger women. Despite that, he and his wife care for each other and he tends attentively to her in her last days while remaining unchanged in character.
In a town in northern France, teenagers sitting for the baccalaureate await the fateful date with anxiety tempered with indifference. The past year has been the scene of their conflicts with adults and teachers alike who consider the exam as the highway to employment. The disillusioned teenagers see it more as the dead-end street to unemployment.
