Romain Duris (The Beat That My Heart Skipped) and Laetitia Dosch (Jeune femme) star in Guillaume Senez’s latest offering which, like his previous film Keeper, explores the topic of fatherhood. Olivier is struggling to find a balance between work and family life, when his wife Laura (Lucie Debay) leaves the family home. Olivier is left to do the best he can between his two young children’s needs, life’s daily challenges and battling injustices at work. Like a delicately poised house of cards, Olivier must work hard to avoid total collapse. (MPR)
Director’s Note: Senez’s hand-held camera closely follows the characters, creating an overall feeling of spontaneity and honesty, bringing great empathy to his characters in this intimate, thoughtful and affecting drama.
