Claire Denis's film-making is so elliptical you sometimes feel at a loss to know what's going on, but the mood – cool, meditative, unhurried – beckons you along insistently.
This film takes a sidelong look at work, home, love, sympathy, and invites us to make the links between them. At its centre is a widowed Parisian train driver Lionel (Alex Descas) and his student daughter, Josephine (Mati Diop), who have lived companionably in the same flat for years. A kind of narrative ambles on – a rock concert is missed, a cat dies, a trip to Germany reveals a lost kinship – though it's the fleeting changes of facial expression and body language that carry whatever elusive meaning lurks within. Patience is required, and, in the end, is mysteriously rewarded.

Q. My male border collie is so nervous that while on a lead, any strange and slightly loud noise turns him into a quivering wreck. When he's scared he barks continuously and tries to hide behind me. I now walk him twice-weekly for one and a half hours along busy streets to try and get him used to the general carry-on of daily life but I don't think he's improving. What can I do?

He has insisted there is almost certainly no such thing as global warming, threatened to run down cyclists who get in his way and vowed to keep his patio heater lit 24 hours a day, just to annoy Greenpeace. But the environmentalists are no longer prepared to put up with Jeremy Clarkson's car-loving agenda.
