Jacques Audiard returns to the mojo of RUST AND BONE and THE BEAT THAT MY HEART SKIPPED in this soulful, sensual urban portrait of two women and a man at loose ends in Paris. Named after a residential high-rise complex, the story begins with telesales agent Emilie taking in a new lodger, reflective high school teacher Camille. The mutual attraction is instant, even if it can’t last, and their passion shows the movie’s frank understanding of sexual needs and desires as part of basic well-being. Late bloomer Nora is the new arrival in town, attending university after a career in real estate, but, through a strange twist of events involving a party and a cam girl, she finds herself in crisis.
Joined by screenwriters Céline Sciamma and Léa Mysius, Audiard portrays these three characters each fighting to overcome some desperate weakness within and drawing on unexpected reserves of strength in the process. Shooting in richly expressive black and white with a camera that surges through a very 2021 vision of Paris, Audiard (with DP Paul Guilhaume) craft a raw look at romance and disconnect (with a realistic share of glowing laptops and panicked cell-phone calls). (Nic Rapold)
