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.
