From The Land Of The Moon (Mal de pierres)
Director Nicole Garcia transposes Milena Agus' novel from Sardinia to the south of France to chart a sweeping romance, undone by bad timing and cruel fate. Free spirit Gabrielle (Marion Cotillard) is threatened with an extended stay at a mental hospital unless she agrees to marry dull farm worker Jose (Alex Brendemuhl). She reluctantly agrees and prepares for a loveless marriage until a medical diagnosis propels her temporarily on a different path. Gabrielle is sent to Switzerland to recuperate where she meets a handsome wounded lieutenant called Andre (Louis Garrel), who sets her heart ablaze. Alas, since Gabrielle is married and Andre is a man of staunch principles, their love can never be, but the sexual attraction between the couple crackles, offering Gabrielle a glimpse at the all-consuming romance she has always craved.
