About the film:

World Premiere, 2023 Cannes Film Festival.
Winner of the 2024 César Award for Best Adapted Screenplay.

When Blanche meets the charismatic Gregoire at a party her twin sister Rose drags her to, she thinks she has found the one. The ties that bind them grow quickly, and a passionate affair ensues. Rose has serious reservations about Gregoire, but against her better judgment, they decide to marry and move in together. Blanche and Gregoire soon relocate far from Blanche’s family where her new life begins; having two children, working as an elementary school teacher, and learning to tiptoe around Gregoire’s unfounded burgeoning insecurities. Little by little Blanche finds herself caught in the grip of a deeply possessive and dangerous man, desperate to escape his increasingly threatening affections. Adapted from Éric Reinhardt’s prize-winning novel L’amour et les forêts by Valérie Donzelli and Audrey Diwan.

“[A] nervy, finely acted domestic thriller.”

—Guy Lodge, Variety
