Synopsis 3.5 stars out of 4 -- Hansen-Løve's gift is in presenting this vast internal journey with elegance and clarity, resisting the urge for scenery-chewing catharsis, and always examining just how much time operates as a force in our lives. In one way or another, Hansen-Løve's films are all about the passage of time.[Hansen-Løve] conveys in single sentences what less confident filmmakers might expound on in a monologue, and makes small gestures more poignant by tossing them off casually or making an unexpected cut.Ms. Hansen-Love observes the vagaries of Nathalie’s situation with compassion and lucidity....Nathalie reinvents herself before our eyes, and we believe what we see because Ms. Huppert is doing it too.[Q]uietly wonderful...a film whose subtle satisfactions very much sneak up on you.THINGS TO COME is that rare film that presents intellectual life, not as an elitist cliche or pretentious joke but as a sustaining and valid part of human existence. It is also startlingly of this moment...[W]ry, cerebral, and moving....Complementing Hansen-Love’s deft writing and direction, Huppert transforms what might have been an unsympathetic role into a character who embodies universal anxieties, desires, weaknesses, and virtues.3.5 stars out of 4 -- Huppert's brilliance is indisputable, her performance alternately playful and deeply moving.THINGS TO COME is concerned with someone cobbling together a usable future out of the diminished possibilities left before them. It is, in other words, defiantly adult.A fiftysomething leftist philosophy professor (Isabelle Huppert) is propelled into a midlife crisis after being squeezed between caring for her deteriorating mother (Edith Scob) and learning that her husband (André Marcon) wants to end their marriage. The blow of confronting her own mortality is cushioned by her friendship with a younger former student (Roman Kolinka), whose invitation to visit his anarchist commune in the countryside allows her a chance to remember the more radical and less burdened person she once was.
