From the director of OUR CHILDREN comes the story of Boris (Cédric Kahn) and Marie (Bérénice Bejo), a couple who have decided to separate after 15 years. They have two girls they adore. However, cash-strapped Boris is still living in the family home and, with neither willing to give up the house, their living situation has become a nightmare. With great magnitude, Joachim Lafosse captures the painfully intimate, harrowingly fascinating drama about the emotional and financial complexities of a separation, and the complexity of the end of a long love story.

"A great, intimate film! Vibrates with exceptional intensity!"Postif

"Bérénice Bejo and Cédric Kahn star in this superbly acted depiction of a couple reaching the end of the road." The Guardian

"It's like Ingmar Bergman's SCENES FROM A MARRIAGE condensed into a shorter timeframe and only a handful of rooms, although its depiction of a crumbling relationship can be just as complex, if not quite as emotionally resonant during its final stages." —The Hollywood Reporter

"Unapologetically aimed at the arthouse crowd, this is superior filmmaking. Superbly acted and well written, it stakes its claim in the pantheon of love-gone-wrong watches."Empire
