Synopsis

In an empty villa, Vera Baxter sits and contemplates her life, as she recounts to a woman who was drawn to the villa when she heard the name Vera Baxter pronounced. Vera tells her about her no-good husband, who has been using her to keep his failing business afloat, up to her present love affair.

Our take

Mighty performances from Claudine Gabay and Delphine Seyrig bring to life Marguerite Duras’ (India Song) compassionate film. Fixating on one heartbreaking conversation—as music from a neighboring party permeates the room—Duras creates a one-of-a-kind, visceral experience about the anguish of love.
