Things to Come Trailer

"To think… I've found my freedom." The official UK trailer for the new Mia Hansen-Løve film has debuted. Titled Things to Come, or L'avenir in French, the film stars Isabelle Huppert as a philosophy teacher dealing with various trials and tribulations later in her life, with her husband and children. The full cast includes André Marcon, Roman Kolinka, and Edith Scob. The film first premiered at the Berlin Film Festival and won a Silver Bear for Best Director, which was excellent because Mia Hansen-Løve is a very talented filmmaker. I interviewed her in Berlin, as I'm a huge fan of her past work as well, and wanted to talk with her about her films - read that here. This is a very philosophical film that will make you think deeply about life and where it all leads, all thanks to the always brilliant mind of Mia Hansen-Løve. Enjoy.

Here's the first official UK trailer (+ poster) for Mia Hansen-Løve's Things to Come, direct from YouTube:

Things to Come Poster

Nathalie (Huppert) teaches philosophy at a Parisian high school. She is deeply passionate about her job and enjoys passing on the pleasure of thinking to others. Married with two children, she divides her time between her family, former students and her eccentric mother, leading a life of personal and intellectual fulfilment. Unexpectedly, Nathalie's husband announces he is leaving her for another woman. With an newfound freedom suddenly thrust upon her, Nathalie must reinvent herself and establish a new way of living. Things to Come, originally L'avenir in French, is both written & directed by French filmmaker Mia Hansen-Løve (read my interview with her), of the films All Is Forgiven, Father of My Children, Goodbye First Love, and Eden previously. This premiered at the Berlin Film Festival and won Best Director. Things to Come opens in UK theaters on September 2nd, but no US release date is set. Visit the official website.

Oh that. I knew that. But never mind, I sometimes assume very profound things that are not there. Anyway, as Bo already stated, she's actress worth watching ...

She doesn't look her age. Great movie iof the 70s indeed. Hopefully you will catch up on the cable someday.

Half of the charm of this film seems like the French language.
