Rendez-Vous – from the Woodstock Film Festival

RENDEZ-VOUS

This was a riveting film and I recommend it.

This Dutch film was released in June 2015 in the Netherlands. It is Director Antoinette Baumer’s latest work based on a 2006 novel by Esther Verhoef.  The drama about adultery focuses on a 34 year-old Dutch woman (Loes Haverkort) who inherits a broken-down farmhouse in France and moves there with her husband and two small children. They intend to turn the farmhouse into a B&B but while construction work is underway, she starts an affair with a very good-looking worker (Pierre Boulanger) which will turn her family life upside down.

P.S. It reminded me of an earlier French work by the famous film director Francois Truffaut, The Woman Next Door with Fanny Ardant and Gerard Depardieu.
