Thomas, a teenager suffering through his parents’ divorce, is startled on a country walk by Martin, an escaped convict. After a series of striking events, Lili, Thomas’s mother, who feels trapped by her struggles to raise Thomas and the village’s provincial ways, finds herself drawn to Martin.

MUBI's take

Co-scripted by Olivier Assayas and starring Catherine Deneuve alongside Danielle Darrieux, André Téchiné’s finely tuned psychological mystery witnesses the disturbing downfall of a seemingly typical family in rural France. A volatile concoction of pulpy thrills, forbidden love, and moral quandaries.
