Tom, a novelist in his forties, comes to Paris to win back the love of his daughter. When things don’t go as planned, he ends up in a shady hotel, having to work as a night guard to make ends meet. Just when he can sink no lower, Margit, a sensual, mysterious woman, suddenly appears in his life.

MUBI's take

Before returning to his native Poland to film Ida and the Oscar®-nominated Cold War, Paweł Pawlikowski directed this Paris-set romantic thriller. Kristin Scott Thomas and Ethan Hawke embark with captivating suspense on a raw and passionate love affair that conceals a disturbing mystery.
