At the age of 33, Arman decides it’s time to change his life. To begin, one Saturday he goes jogging in a park.

Benjamin is Arman’s best friend. One evening he collapses and falls over into a hedgegrow. Doctors diagnose a stroke.
Between two autumns and three winters, the lives of Amélie, Arman and Benjamin intermingle and are filled with meetings, accidents, love stories and memories.

“★★★★★ A lighthearted homage to the films of Jean-Luc Godard and others... reminds you in a series of gentle nudges that whether you want it to or not, the future happens.”
- Steven Holden, New York Times, Critics’ Pick
“An extension of what Jean-Luc Godard did all those years ago...A film with wit, style and... real emotional power that deserves to be seen.”
- Peter Sobczynski, RogerEbert.com
“Extends tremendous compassion to all of its characters ...Though set in the present, the film strongly evokes the spirit and playfulness of the Nouvelle Vague”
- Melissa Anderson, Village Voice
