A woman’s life is dramatically transformed when she witnesses a gunman open fire indiscriminately on a Parisian bistro. Three months later, the traumatic event leaves her memory clouded as she grapples to piece together what happened. In her search for closure, she revisits the scene of the attack and seeks solace in a support group comprising of fellow survivors. Featuring an award-winning performance by Virginie Efira, Alice Winocour (Proxima, Mustang) presents a sensitive contemplation on grief, healing, and the profound significance of human connections formed in tragedy.
Winner of Best Actress Award (Virginie Efira) at the 2023 César Awards, France.
‘It’s a measured, quietly powerful film with a performance from Virginie Efira that seems almost telepathic at times; in scenes where she doesn’t say a word, barely twitching a muscle in her face, yet somehow you know what she’s feeling.’
Cath Clarke, The Guardian
‘It’s a sensitive, careful film with real emotional intelligence, but no less gripping for swerving dramatic fireworks in favour of quieter, more observational moments.’
Philip De Semlyen, Time Out

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
