Overview

Oscar-winner Marion Cotillard (Ma vie en rose), Mathieu Amalric (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) and Charlotte Gainsbourg (Antichrist) team up for the latest feature from acclaimed writer-director Arnaud Desplechin (A Christmas Tale). Filmmaker Ismael (Amalric) lives with his wife Sylvia (Gainsbourg) but remains obsessed with his ex-wife (Cotillard), who disappeared 20 years ago and is believed to be dead. When she suddenly reappears, Ismael’s life – already complicated by a film project he is unable to finish – takes a strange turn.

A wonderful showcase for some of French cinema’s finest acting talent, Desplechin's film is a twisty and playful comic-thriller that should appeal to fans of François Ozon's work.
