Looking for Hortense (Cherchez Hortense) by Pascal Bonitzer (France, 2012, 97 min.). With mounting pressure from his partner Iva (Kristin Scott Thomas), Damien (Jean-Pierre Bacri) needs to muster the courage to approach his father (Claude Rich), a high-ranking state judge, for a favor regarding an illegal immigrant named Zorica, a person he doesn’t even know. As his relationship with Iva crumbles, he meets Aurore (Isabelle Carr), a woman who seems to provide the spark his life is missing.
