A Music Box Films release

One evening, when Gabriel and Emilie meet by chance  in Nantes, he offers her a ride, and they spend the evening talking, laughing and getting along famously. Although they're both attracted to each other, they each already have someone in their life. What's more, they know that they will probably never see each other again. Even so, he'd like to kiss her. She'd also like to kiss him. But something prevents them from doing so: Emilie declines Gabriel’s offer of “a kiss without consequences” and admonishes him that the kiss could have unexpected consequences. She tells him a true story, unfolding in flashbacks, about the impossibility of indulging your desires without affecting someone else’s life.

"Expert, intricate, ineffably droll, ultimately provocative and entirely enchanting." ~  THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

"Irresistible, enchanting…with a surprisingly sober twist." ~ MARIE CLAIRE

"Mouret marries Rohmer’s visual lucidity and love of smart dialogue to the sort of screwball-comedy antics that wouldn’t have seemed out of place in the films of Lubitsch or Hawks, and he does it all with a beguiling lightness of touch." - LOS ANGELES WEEKLY
