Synopsis

From the director of “OUR CHILDREN”, comes the stark story of Boris (Cédric Kahn) and Marie (Bérénice Bejo), a couple who have decided to separate after 15 years together. They have two girls that they adore. However, cash-strapped Boris is still living in the family home. When all is said and done, neither of the two is willing to give up.Now this apartment is a war zone and their situation a nightmare.

REACTIONS

“It’s like Ingmar Bergman’s “Scenes from a Marriage” condensed into a shorter timeframe and only a handful of rooms, although its depiction of a crumbling relationship can be just as complex, if not quite as emotionally resonant during its final stages.” – Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter

“ GREAT INTIMATE FILM Vibrates with exceptional intensity!”— Positif

Bérénice Bejo and Cédric Kahn star in this superbly acted depiction of a couple reaching the end of the road. —Wendy Ide, The Guardian

“Unapologetically aimed at the arthouse crowd, this is superior filmmaking. Superbly acted and well written, it stakes its claim in the pantheon of love-gone-wrong watches.”— Andrew Lowry Empire
