Victor is an aspiring poet who lives in Vienna with his Austrian girlfriend and their littler daughter Pamela. He has writer's block and spends his days and nights going from one bar to another. When they move to Paris for a new beginning, Victor leaves everything for a junkie he has fallen in love with. 11 years later, Pamela decides she wants to see her father again.
Presented at the Directors' Fortnight in 2007, Tout est pardonné (All is Forgiven) is Mia Hansen-Løve's first film, made when she was only 26. To trace the 11-year period between Vienna, Paris and Caracas of the tumultuous life of the two loving parents Victor and Annette, their painful breakup and the inner journey of their beloved daughter Pamela, Mia Hansen-Løve chose a fragmented style of directing, full of black holes and brilliant flashes. This produces a dazzling portrayal of a sensitive young woman and creates the foundations of the future style of a director who shows impressive mastery in this, her first, film. “(...) words fail me to define the wholehearted admiration this film arouses. Elegance, clarity, depth (...) characterizing, the astounding accuracy of the directing, as precise, sensitive and fleeting as a laser beam”. (Jacques Mandelbaum; Le Monde)
