“As sharp and savage as any breakup drama this side of A SEPARATION. – David Ehrlich, Indiewire

Bérénice Bejo (star of 2012 Best Picture Oscar Winner THE ARTIST) stars in this 2016 Cannes Film Festival selection from director Joachim Lafosse (OUR CHILDREN). After fifteen years together, Marie (Bejo) and Boris (Cédric Kahn) have to decided to separate. However, Boris refuses to move out of the family home that Marie shares with their 8-year old twin daughters. Though his name is not on the deed, cash-strapped Boris feels that he deserves half the home’s worth because of construction work he performed that increased its market value. Both sides refuse to budge in this painfully intimate, intensely fascinating drama about the emotional and financial complexities of a separation and the end of a long love story.
