Coup de foudre

Diane Kurys / FR, 1983 / 108 min.

‘Coup de foudre’ is a French expression for love at first sight, that flash of love between two people who’ve never set eyes on each other before. The film of the same name – starring Isabelle Huppert and Miou-Miou in the lead roles – brings together two women against the backdrop of WWII. The feelings they have for each other remain unspoken.
