Nathalie teaches philosophy in a Paris high school. She’s married with two kids, and divides her time between her family, her former students, and her mother. One day, her husband announces he’s leaving her for another woman, and she must carry on alone.
Set in 2010, still during Sarkozy’s presidency, Mia Hansen-Løve’s Things to Come talks about the intellectual backdrop of a time of continuous change; those experimented by the character played by Isabelle Huppert but also the changes in the forms of struggle and political activism that set the nostalgic of ‘68 against the new generations. She is a philosophy professor, and philosophy plays a part in conversations naturally –one of the miracles of French cinema: being able to include discussions about Rousseau, Adorno, Anders or the Unabomber without it being pedantic at all. On the contrary, it’s amazing how lightly Hansen-Løve introduces us to her characters, and also how nimbly Things to Come is narrated. JP
