"Just a Sigh" is competing in the Tribeca Film Festival

"Just a Sigh" is an engrossing, slowly unfolding film in French and English that centers around Alix - Emmanuelle Devos and the man - Gabriel Byrne - she sees and follows as she takes time out in Paris. They continue following each other into a few hours of  romance as she realizes that her life will change. To quote the OKCMOA's website, "the film captures vivid insights of an irrational, sentimental encounter balanced between the extremes of elopement and routine, with breathtaking psychological intrigue."

To see the trailer, go to.
"Just a Sigh" continues Saturday night at 5:30 and 8:00 p.m., and tomorrow, Sunday, at 2 p.m. Tickets are $11 for adults, and $7 for all others, including children.
