Leaving (Partir) by Catherine Corsini, 2009

with Kristin Scott Thomas, Sergi López, Yvan Attal, Bernard Blancan, Aladin Reibel, Alexandre Vidal, Daisy Broom, Berta Esquirol, Gérard Lartigau

Bored with her life of leisure, Suzanne (Kristin Scott Thomas) decides to reestablish her career as a physiotherapist. But first, she'll need an office ... and that's where her troubles begin in this drama from Catherine Corsini. As soon as Suzanne meets the man her husband hired to construct her backyard office, she falls hard -- and the attraction is mutual ... and dangerous.

How many movies about married woman having a crush on another man, after many years in the boredom of their marriage. How many are portraying the weakness of the woman, creating a drama that makes the woman guilty, the other man someone horrible, and the husband a victim. Well, here is the other way around, and the strength Kristin Scott Thomas is able to perform makes the movie a total different one: the husband as well as the wife have a responsibility for this to happen but in reality, it happens like love happens sometimes, in a very instinctive circumstance, and with another man that is as taken by the events as the wife, responsible but in love. And that makes the movie surprising, violent, sensual, angry, and instead of a soft weeping romantic drama, you have an energizing movie about love.
