Stéphane Brizé in Mademoiselle Chambon

Mademoiselle Chambon

2009 NR

When shy schoolteacher and gifted violinist Véronique Chambon (Sandrine Kiberlain) invites blue-collar construction worker Jean (Vincent Lindon) to speak to her class about his trade, she's surprised to find herself irresistibly attracted to him -- and the feeling is mutual. But the gulf in their social positions and Jean's marital status complicate matters in this quiet drama, which snagged an Independent Spirit Award nod for Best Foreign Film.
