McGregor stars as Michael, the head chef at a swanky Glasgow restaurant, and Eva Green as Susan, an aloof epidemiologist who catches his eye and is hearing reports across the world of people inexplicably losing their senses. They embark on a sensual adventure that sees them experiencing new and unforeseen depths of feeling and moments of pure connection. But is this because they are falling in love or is it because the world as they know it is beginning to fall apart? A life-affirming look at what it means to love and be loved in turbulent times, the film was hailed by in its 10/10 review as “the best, most effective, most affecting movie” of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and by Matt Glasby of Total Film in a Four Star review as “thought-provoking and beautifully made.”
