Adapted from the 1964 novel by Georges Simenon, this is a tale of a married man who falls foul of the law after an affair with a local femme fatale.

Moving between past and present, the film pieces together how Julien has gone from a world of hotel bedrooms to a police cell, implicated in a murder. Writer, actor and director Mathieu Amalric has constructed a passionate drama that artfully builds tension to breaking point.

“An impressive and impressionistic romantic thriller from one of france’s finest working actors.” The Hollywood Reporter
