Avec amour et acharnement
Sara and Jean have been living together for years and are still deeply in love. Entwined, they float on a cloud of unconditional love that makes them happy and in which they feel strengthened by each other. Sailing on blind trust, they still desire each other fervently and passionately every day. One morning Sara runs into her former lover François, but he does not see her. François introduced Sara to Jean, and is the same man she left outright for a future with Jean. Overwhelmed by a deep inner, intimate longing, Sara can suddenly think only of intimacy with her former flame. Lady Fortune seems in her good graces: when, purely by chance, François proposes to Jean that they work together again, the three become embroiled in a turbulent love triangle.
Avec amour et acharnement is a sizzling love drama by the French director Claire Denis, thanks in part to the sublime performances by the seasoned Juliette Binoche and Vincent Lindon. Known for her fearless and sensitive films since her debut in 1988, Denis can be counted as one of Europe's leading film authors. Avec amour et acharnement won the Silver Bear for Best Direction at the Berlinale 2022.
