About the Film

Director: Eric Lartigau
Actors: Romain Duris, Marina Foïs, Niels Arestrup

Paul Exben is a success story - partner in one of Paris's most exclusive law firms, big salary, big house, glamorous wife and two sons straight out of a Gap catalog. But when he finds out that Sarah, his wife, is cheating on him with Greg Kremer, a local photographer, a rush of blood provokes Paul into a fatal error.

The film will be followed by an informal reception and an open discussion.

Praise

This psychological thriller was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay at the 2011 César Awards and is Certified Fresh with an 88% positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

It moves, with supple muscularity, toward a twisty and satisfying conclusion.
– Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
This existential thriller is about a person who seeks personal freedom by becoming somebody else.
– Mark Jenkins, NPR
