Rebecca (Juliette Binoche) is one of the world’s top war photographers, who begins the film documenting a female suicide bomber in Afghanistan and nearly loses her life in the ensuing explosion. As Rebecca is convalescing in hospital, we learn that she is also a wife and mother and her life is a constant negotiation between her two great passions, her work and her family. She resolves to concentrate on the latter at the expense of the former but when her teenage daughter becomes interested in third world politics and expresses an interest in seeing Africa for herself, she is tempted by one last trip. Poppe delivers a film of real emotional resonance, beautifully shot and expertly gripping, with Binoche at the centre, delivering a supremely confident performance of a complicated, not always sympathetic character.
