Since her feature length debut, Chocolat, in 1988, Claire Denis has gone on to direct many critically acclaimed films including Beau Travail (1999), 35 Shots of Rum (2008) and White Material (2009). Her fourteenth feature, Let the Sunshine In, finds the celebrated director on fine form with a black romantic comedy about an artist, Isabelle (Juliette Binoche), and the unsatisfactory affairs that make up her unfulfilling love life.
Loosely based on Roland Barthes’ text A Lover’s Discourse: Fragments (1977), Let the Sunshine In sees Isabelle fruitlessly search for romantic love with a parade of lovers including a porn addicted ex-husband, a volatile actor and a cold-hearted banker. A witty tale of idealism, dissatisfaction and indecision, Denis’ latest is driven by a sparkling, sexually charged central performance from Binoche as a woman seeking some clear signposts for life.
