While hopelessly pursuing his dreams of becoming a movie director, Boris, a shy computer nerd, falls in love with his beautiful colleague, Marilyne. Five years and two children later, Marilyne has become a successful executive, Boris’s career has gone no where, and their once passionate relationship is coming to an end. As the two begin to separate, a chance encounter brings them back together and they must confront if this is meant to be.
“Mathieu Amalric and Hélène Fillières are magnificent in an original mix of melodrama, musical comedy, laughing sociology, directed by Jean-Marie and Arnaud Larrieu.” – Le Monde
