Julie lives with her boyfriend Ismaël, and rather than worry about the time he spends with his colleague Alice, Julie invites Alice to join them. The three walk about Paris, party, read, and sleep together. Sometimes it’s lovely, and other times there are jealousies. But then tragedy strikes.
In spite of emotive bursts into song, this throwback to the 1960s musical is a personal, deeply felt film for its director. An intriguing, bold work at the same time self-conscious and sincere—with an ensemble cast that includes Honore’s regular collaborators Louis Garrel and Chiara Mastroianni.
