Mathieu Amalric’s 6th turn as director is an adaptation of Claudine Galea’s play I Am Coming Back From Far.

“Krieps’ performance is a standout in its profound, elegiac devastation – one not seen since Juliette Binoche’s turn as a grieving woman in Krzysztof Kieslowski’s Three Colors: Blue.” — Paste Magazine

Clarisse (played beautifully by Vicky Krieps), a mother and wife, abruptly abandons the family house, her husband Marc (Arieh Worthalter) and their pre-teen children, Lucie and Paul. As she drives away making her escape, her imagination runs wild – she imagines them going about their daily lives, she imagines her return, their death… Are these stories real, memories or fantasy? Has she even really left?

Followed by Q&A with the actor Vicky Krieps.
