 (lit. “Mistakes”), he adapts Alain Monnier’s novel Côté Jardin. Jacques Mahieux is a lucky man, the man chosen by Françoise, a magnificent but fragile woman. So fragile, in fact, that her husband, Doctor Lepage, has to watch over her daily, protecting her from anything that could harm her. In particular, he ensures that all the “butterflies” fluttering around her are kept at a distance.

Cast in the role of Françoise is French actress Moana Ferré, often seen treading the boards. The two men who are tearing each other apart, Doctor Lepage and Jacques Mahieux, are respectively played by Pascal Greggory, one of Patrice Chéreau’s pet actors, recently appearing in Olivier Marchal’s telefilm Section Zéro and Pascal Bonitzer’s feature film Tout de suite maintenant [+see also:
