Aroview: Quality French drama explores the emotional wreck of a widower who tries to rebuild his life and make sense of his loss in the aftermath of his wife's (Audrey Tautou) disappearance.

Scripted and acted with sensitivity and intelligence, this also carefully handles the slow reveal of Tautou's disappearance, finally striking upon an ending that is satisfying without feeling manipulative.
