Daphne welcomes Maxime, her partner’s cousin, into her home. While they wait for the host’s return, the two explain their respective romantic lives. Emmanuel Mouret offers us a delightful work, structured through a series of chain passions, which connects with one of the great traditions of French cinema and narrative, which celebrates love that is made (and unmade) as much as the love that is related.
He graduated from La Fémis and since then he has directed twelve films, many of which have been seen at festivals such as Locarno or Cannes and have received nominations and César Awards. His filmography moves between comedy and romantic drama through which he speaks of the complexity of affective relationships. His last two films have been selected at the 2021 and 2023 editions of D’A.
