François Ozon is back with a skillfully triangulated story about a woman who learns that the husband of her deceased best friend is harbouring a most unusual secret. Best friends Claire (Anaïs Demoustier) and Laura (Isild Le Besco) are utterly inseperable. As little girls, they carve their names to the wood and change blood to swear an oath for their friendship. After both of them have got married, Laura becomes ill and passes away, leaving her devastated husband David (Romain Duris) and Claire behind, to take care of her little daughter Lucy. Claire, one day visiting David, finds out about his shocking secret.

This wonderfully set story of dealing with loss and looking for comfort, opening up to your deepest desires you are afraid to show will take you along to a journey of thrilling wonder. Both Anaïs Demoustier and Romain Duris bring amazing performances to the big screen.
