    The film is a bracingly romantic drama that's alive with a mature sense of passion and mystery.

    The movie is beautifully acted, and the chemistry between Ms. Devos, who is 49 (her character is 43), and Mr. Byrne, 63, is heated in a sadder-but-wiser, grown-up way.

    Devos keeps her character’s unreliability and self-disappointment relatable, and falling backwards into a new lover is something that Devos captures beautifully with her uncertain facial expressions and hungry eyes.

    Just a Sigh's day-long liaison sustains interest largely for the appeal of Devos and Byrne, its accomplished leads — they share what is known in the rom-com lexicon as "chemistry," and this quality invigorates their time together, in bed and out.

    Without much to go on, Just a Sigh lives up to its name. It disappears without a trace.

    When Jérôme Bonnell allows his two magnificent leads to work at the sparse dialogue, he invokes a powerful, elemental sense of frank, sexual discussion and high-end flirtation, imbuing the relationships with a maturity that's loathsomely rare in films today.

    If you’re wondering how much heat you’ll find in this French romance, the title offers an unexpectedly frank clue.

    The connection that these two are allegedly making must be taken on faith. Little is shown or spoken to sell it.
