A traffic jam brings together a man and woman who, for one night, form a sensual connection.
Dir Claire Denis
With Valérie Lemercier, Vincent Lindon, Grégoire Colin, Hélène de Saint-Père
During a gridlocked traffic jam in Paris one rainy Friday night, Laure (Lemercier) picks up Jean (Lindon). They end up making love before returning to their separate lives. The most conceptually simple Claire Denis film, adapted from a novel by Emmanuèle Bernheim, is also her most erotic – alive with sensual details, especially the artistic close-ups of bodies.
