Good night ,Irene.
Irene lost her husband in a car crash :she was in the car but she came out unscathed :she was pregnant and she decided she would keep the baby ;but it was hard to overcome the tragedy ,she gave up her career -a stage actress- and her child,Emile , was put in the care of a nurse,Helene .Now,she seems to be able to raise her boy again ,and she meets him in La Rochelle where she meets Yann ,a sailor ;it's love at first sight.

This script may seem derivative but actor/director Nicolas Giraud manages to overcome those clichés and his first effort is endearing.He doesn't pass over in silence a certain rivalry between the mom and the nanny ;the mother is still immature, she finds it hard to make up her mind, till the last pictures ; Nicole ,marvelously played by highly talented Helene Vincent may sometimes seem hard on Irène ,but further acquaintance shows that she possesses the wisdom (which Irène lacks,even though she gives Emile a "wisdom notebook" ) ; she does not really rise to the occasion when she welcomes sailor Yann in the house

Sailor Yann is perfectly depicted in the FRENCH song ,Françoise Hardy's "Des Ronds Dans L'Eau " : "you would like to be loved ,a bit like a hero,but who would enjoy making rings in the water"; for a sailor ,life means adventure,taking risks ,and Irène cannot relate to that .He is about to sail for a long voyage he has postponed several time and his dream is to to take Irene and Emile with him.

This is the very subject of the film: two people launching into a new phase of their life .

NB :"Des Ronds Dans L'Eau " was a song featured in Claude Lelouch's "Vivre Pour Vivre" (1967),sung by Nicole Croisille ;kudos to Nicolas Giraud ,for championing La Chanson Française whereas most of his colleagues choose songs in English whose connection with the plot is often dubious.
