An absorbing treatise on the fragility of happiness and the corrosive effects of distrust and secrecy on relationships.
Actor Louis (played by the director’s son, Louis Garrel) has separated from his wife, and only sees his eight-year-old daughter on weekends. But he has found a new, passionate love with his mistress, a volatile actress named Claudia (Anna Mouglalis).
Divided into two chapters, the film starts with the relatively comfortable domestic rapport of Louis and Claudia. But in the second half, the seeds of jealousy, planted earlier, begin to sprout.
