For A Woman
Diane Kury's historical melodrama opens with Anne looking through her mothers belongings shortly after her death. When Anne discovers a photograph of her mother with a man she doesnt recognize, the film flashbacks to 1947 where we discover a lusty family secret. Set in post-war France, For a Woman perfectly captures a country and a people on the mend while exploring the discovery of an affair that was inspired by the directors own family history. Anne's destiny intertwines with her father's past until they form a single, unforgettable story.
