Someone, Somewhere is the new film by Cédric Klapisch (Chinese Puzzle), a drama that talks about the relationships we maintain throughout our lives and about how things seem to be intertwined with an enigmatic thread of fate.
In this movie, we meet our two protagonists, Rémy (François Civil), a common guy with a common job, who has some problems dealing with other people, and his social interaction level is very low. On the other side, we have Mélanie (Ana Girardot), a health researcher who faces relationship problems after a breakup that left her traumatized.
Two people who have nothing to do with each other, but who are closer than you think, both go to the same market, begin to consult with psychologists at about the same time, and try to deal with their loneliness and needs for contact in the best possible way they can. Whether they’re looking to change their behaviour patterns and interact more with people around them, or even venture into dating apps.
Meeting someone is something that sounds really easy, but at the same time, it’s very complicated, with so much information being thrown at people, yet it’s a movie that shows how, even though we are living our unique worlds, they end up involving and bumping into each other, so it seems even inevitable to control some events.
It is a modern film full of situations that are easily recognized and that speaks well with the current moment of society and interpersonal relations, an important reflection, with a very beautiful and sensitive photography.
