Writer/ director François Ozon (Swimming Pool, 8 Women) reshapes author Ruth Rendell’s short story into a deliciously subversive melodrama.
When his wife dies, husband David (Duris) is left to raise their daughter, Lucie on his own. Helping the grief stricken David is Lucie’s godmother and his wife’s childhood friend Claire (Demoustier), whose unexpected arrival reveals a surprising secret.
A complex and beautifully crafted tale of gender, identity and class.
“Ozon’s film quivers between psychological thriller and
Playful farce.”★★★★★ The Skinny
