When their mother dies, her self-involved grown children — Juliette Binoche, Charles Berling, and Jérémie Renier — have to decide what to do with her grand country house, a treasure trove of art masterpieces that reflects her life with a famous painter uncle. That’s the situation, but writer-director Olivier Assayas (Irma Vep, Boarding Gate) delves beneath the surface to capture the essential melancholy of a well-spent life — time passes and everything eventually fades from view. Kudos to the three principals, although the real stars of this character study may be the Art Nouveau and Art Deco pieces, which go from being part of a living household to just another display in the Musée d’Orsay (103 min.).
