Our take

Desire gets weird when dutiful doppelgängers are around, and this half-hour enigma goes full Yorgos Lanthimos with its speculative universe of strict symmetry. Reprising the role of Lucienne not once but twice, Stéphane Caillard transfixes both as a biddable body and as one that aches for escape.
