DIRECTOR: Jérôme Bonnell - FRANCE

In the short break between performances of an Ibsen play in Calais, stage actress Alix (Emmanuelle Devos) makes a quick day-trip to Paris for an audition. On the train, she meets a mysterious, stoic English professor (Gabriel Byrne) and, enamored, decides to try and track him down after they have seemingly parted forever. Shifting in tone from drama to comedy, over the course of a day, Just a Sigh beautifully chronicles the blossoming of an all-too-brief love affair between the two, a romance in Paris that brings hope and passion into Alix’s harried life and comfort to her chance lover. “From Brief Encounter to Before Sunrise, the premise is familiar…. Credit Bonnell for a compelling romance about chance, fate, the different parts we all play, and the journeys we are taking.”—RTÉ, Dublin. (104 mins.)

Filmography: Le chignon d’Olga (02), Waiting for Someone (07), The Queen of Clubs (09).
