Director: Victor Levin
Year Released: 2014
Rating: 2.0

Struggling writer Brian Bloom (Anton Yelchin) has a chance encounter with a beautiful French woman named Arielle (Bérénice Marlohe) - they start an affair between the title hours (and those hours only) because she's married to older and wealthier diplomat Valery (Lambert Wilson) ... and it's only when he wants her to leave her family that problems arise. The clash between "American prudishness" (opposing having sexual relations with a married woman) and "European libertinism" (Valery also has a lover-on-the-side, played by Olivia Thirlby) is a little overplayed and the real "passion" that's supposed to take place between Yelchin and Marlohe doesn't develop: she refuses his offer and stays with her husband, preferring security over passion (so much for true love finding you in the end). It's light (no one drives a car off a bridge) and moves fluidly ... even though it never convinced me it was fully human.
