Mademoiselle Chambon

Poster for Mademoiselle Chambon

French romantic drama about a man whose family idyll is threatened when he meets his son's mesmerising teacher. From the director of Not Here To Be Loved. More

Jean (Vincent Lindon) leads a pretty ordinary life, spending his days happily in routine between his construction sites and home life with wife and son. One day as he's picking up his son from school, he stumbles upon the boy's teacher: Mademoiselle Chambon (Sandrine Kiberlain). She's discreet, elegant, mesmerising, unlike any woman he has ever met before. The encounter throws his organised life off course: an opportunity to change or a folly to regret?

This small, nearly perfect film is a reminder that personal upheavals are as consequential in people's lives as shattering world events.

People fall in love in every country, but nowhere is the experience put on film with the flawless style, empathy and emotion the French provide. Mademoiselle Chambon is the latest in that line of deeply moving romances, an exquisite chamber piece made with the kind of sensitivity and nuance that's become almost a lost art.

The simplest of stories can be elevated by first-rate acting and directing. Consider Stephane Brize's Mademoiselle Chambon, a French film that achieves a subtle but devastating impact.
