Va Savoir

Jeanne Balibar, Va Savoir (Who Knows?)
Va Savoir: Moune Jamet

Va Savoir is so charming, beautiful, and obsessed with l’amour as to be unmistakably French; it is so sophisticated, accomplished, and long as to be unmistakably the work of new-wave vanguard Jacques Rivette. A theater director and his mistress (Castellitto and Balibar) are happily in love, until he gets smitten by a young blond thing and she runs across her ex-lover. What ensues has all of the wit and wisdom earned during the director’s 73 years, yet, like the best of new-wave filmmaking, it never takes itself too seriously.
