by Christophe Honoré. In the film Chiara Mastroianni is a divorced mother suffering from depression and surrounded by a supportive but oppressive family. Written by the director, this family saga is set in Brittany and Paris. It centres on a woman who is full of contradictions and chained to her close relations, including two young children who witness her deterioration, a bitter, unhappily married sister, a sneering brother, excessively well-meaning parents and an ex-husband who embodies love-hate relationships, present throughout the film. A portrait of shattered pride battling with the breakdown of everyday life, Making Plans for Lena is particularly laudable for its sensitive depiction of the Breton countryside.
