A couple’s relationship becomes complicated, as one might expect, when she leaves him for his best friend. Shifting points of view as nimbly as lovers switching partners, the sophomore feature from French actor/director Louis Garrel is at once a beguiling bedroom farce and a and a slippery inquiry into truth, subjectivity, and the elusive nature of romantic attraction.
The legendary Jean-Claude Carriere co-authored the screenplay with Garrel. Carriere co-penned Luis Buñuel’s magnificent ’60s-’70s run of films, including Phantom of Liberty and The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie.
