A film by Robert Guédiguian

1997 France - Romance

synopsis

Marseille. Marius and Jeannette are in the prime of their lives. Marius lives alone in an immense, disused ciment-works that overlooks the district of the Estaque. Jeannette brings up her two children alone, on a meagre check-out girl's salary. She lives in a tiny house that opens out onto a typical mediterranean-style courtyard. The encounter between Marius and Jeannette will not be simple, as apart from the difficulties linked to their social situation, they have both been hurt...by life.
