Mario can hardly believe that, after years of marriage, his wife Armelle is moving out of their house. Family has always been the most important thing for the loving father. His only hope is that Armelle will return to him and his two beloved daughters soon. While he desperately tries to get the attention of his wife, she only ever reacts to the children, both of which are pushing Mario to his very limits. Almost an adult, older daughter Niki is hardly ever home anymore. Meanwhile, pubescent Frida has just fallen in love with a girl – and blames her father for Armelle’s departure.

Four years after PARTY GIRL, Claire Burger returns with a highly emotional family drama. C'EST ÇA L'AMOUR authentically and empathically tells of the inner life of a small family universe, in which the difficult process of letting go may open up new perspectives.
