Directed by Joachim Lafosse • Drama • With Bérénice Bejo, Cédric Kahn, Marthe Keller • 2017 • 100 minutes
From the director of OUR CHILDREN comes the story of Boris (Cédric Kahn) and Marie (Bérénice Bejo), a couple who have decided to separate after 15 years. They have two girls they adore. However, cash-strapped Boris is still living in the family home and, with neither willing to give up the house, their living situation has become a nightmare. With great magnitude, Joachim Lafosse captures the painfully intimate, harrowingly fascinating drama about the emotional and financial complexities of a separation, and the complexity of the end of a long love story.
"Bérénice Bejo and Cédric Kahn star in this superbly acted depiction of a couple reaching the end of the road." —The Guardian
"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." —The Hollywood Reporter
