Depardieu and Catherine Deneuve, together for
the first time since The Last Metro, play lovers Cécile and Antoine,
who have been parted for over 30 years. Cécile was the first and

uncover and invade her current life. She has moved on, to marriage
and family. Now living in Tangiers, Cécile finds herself suddenly
reunited with her pasta past determined to become her future.
