PFF SpringFest: BOTH SIDES OF THE BLADE
CLAIRE DENIS | FRANCE | 2022 | 116 MIN | FRENCH
When we first meet Sara (Juliette Binoche) and Jean (Vincent Lindon) on a blissful seaside holiday, the two seem to be the picture of a happy, loving couple. But upon their return to Paris, their stability is threatened by the unexpected reappearance of a figure from their past: François (Grégoire Colin), Sara’s former lover and Jean’s former best friend. With long-buried resentments and forgotten passions surging to the surface, Sara must re-assess the path she’s chosen. Featuring sterling performances from some of French cinema’s most esteemed actors, BOTH SIDES OF THE BLADE is another surprising tour-de-force from one of contemporary cinema’s greatest auteurs, Claire Denis.
Cast: Juliette Binoche, Vincent Lindon, Grégoire Colin, Issa Perica
