Charlotte is a young doctor living in Brussels with her husband, Max, and their son.

"A daring exploration of marriage that, like its bold female protagonist, challenges conventional thinking around sex and relationships. Provocative adult drama...its quiet power resonates long after the end credits roll. Beneath its glacial surface, 'Brownian Movement' courses with powerful emotions colliding like in the theory after which the film is named." - Screen Daily
"Composed of ethereal, exquisitely lit widescreen tableaux...the actors are luminous."
"With its unflinching examination of an intelligent woman's sexual life, this is material with strong potential – and, courtesy of luminous cinematography (which makes Sandra Huller strikingly resemble Cate Blanchett at certain junctures), 'Brownian Movement' is always very easy on the eye." - The Hollywood Reporter
"A mysterious, atmospheric, and ultimately enigmatic character study with a strong central performance by Huller, this is recommended for more adventurous collections."
