The divergent paths of three 40-something siblings collide when their mother - heiress to her uncle's exceptional 19th-century art collection - dies suddenly. Left to come to terms with themselves and their differences, successful New York designer Adrienne a successful New York designer, Parisian economist and university professor Frédéric and China-based dynamic businessman Jérémie confront the end of childhood, their shared memories, background and unique vision of the future.
This beautifully observed and played drama from Olivier Assayas looks at the troubled fate of the priceless private art collection, as family members disagree as to its best use. Preserve or sell? Display or protect?
With a stunning cast including Juliette Binoche, Jérémie Rénier, Charles Berling and Edith Scob, this is an intelligent and tender assessment of the power of memory and the value of objects.
