In the short break between performances in Calais, stage actress Alix, played by the stunning Emmanuelle Devos (Desplechin’s CHRISTMAS TALE), makes a quick escape to Paris. On the train, she meets a mysterious Irish stranger. Drawn toward him, she follows him, loves him, for a few hours, before facing what could be a new life. With masterful performances by Devos and her acclaimed co-star Gabriel Byrne, JUST A SIGH is an imaginative and lushly filmed Parisian romance. Young and versatile director Jérôme Bonnell tells a real-time story with a particular sense for detail, reminiscent of François Truffaut’s THE WOMAN NEXT DOOR. JUST A SIGH captures an irrational, sentimental encounter balanced between the extremes of elopement and routine, with breathtaking psychological intrigue. -- Tribeca Film Festival
Amazing chemistry with the two main characters. Perfectly captured the intimacy that strangers can have both physically and even more so emotionally. I enjoy seeing stories of older characters discovering new loves and passion.
Leisurely take in true French manner. Seems slight on the surface, but far more going on underneath.
A great story about love and life. The human condition is a complicated and wonderful thing.
The film did a great job of portraying a lost person who tries to find herself through attaching to others. Also, the film explores how being at the right place at the right time has such an impact on our lives and yet we are so powerless over it.
A somewhat implausible story, propelled along by wonderful acting. Those French know how to tell a love story.
