A sly and lovely romantic musical drama spanning three decades as it follows a mother and daughter's misadventures in love. In the freewheeling Paris of the '60s, young Madeleine (Ludivine Sagnier), who has gone from selling shoes to sleeping with men for money, falls for a handsome Czech doctor, Jaromil (Rasha Bukvic), whom she soon marries and joins in Prague. A baby daughter is born, but Jaromil's infidelities and the arrival of Russian tanks in Prague lead Madeleine back to France, though the love between them still burns. Thirty years later in London, we follow Madeleine's daughter, Vera (Chiara Mastroianni), who has fallen in love with a musician (Paul Schneider) who is incapable of devoting himself to her, while her ex (Louis Garrel) still pines for her. Meanwhile in Paris, a re-married Madeleine (Catherine Deneuve) has rekindled her love affair with Jaromil (Milos Forman)...
