Gilles and Elisa look like a happy couple, yet once in a while Elisa has the feeling that things aren’t quite right with her husband, but she always ignores it — pregnant women are always getting funny ideas. Thus the discovery of the truth is all the more painful…

Our take

This sensuous and haunting tale of love betrayal is built around an extraordinary performance by the award-winning French star Emmanuelle Devos. In his devotion to the period’s atmospherics, director Frédéric Fonteyne lovingly brings to life 1930s France in this fraught drama of unconditional love.
