Five key moments are depicted in reverse order to reveal the disintegration of a marriage between Gilles (Stéphane Freiss) and Marion (Valeria Bruni Tedeschi), starting in the lawyers office where their separation is being finalised going back to when they first met at an Italian beach resort.  The film is punctuated with romantic Italian love songs that Ozon included for their dramatic quality.  The director has said the story was inspired by Jane Campion’s Two Friends (1987). Nominated for a Golden Lion and winner of Best Actress at Venice Film Festival 2004.
