A gripping adaptation of French writer Annie Ernaux's best-selling novel, adapted for the screen by Lebanese filmmaker Danielle Arbid. The film crafts a portrait of the addictive relationship between a mysterious Russian diplomat and a mother, with the latter's psyche gradually dissolving as she waits for a man with whom she shares nothing in common. With Laetitia Dosch, who starred in 2017's Caméra d'or-winning Montparnasse Bienvenue (Jeune Femme) by Leonor Serraille, and ballet dancer Sergei Polunin.
