).

The story revolves around a man who unintentionally kills his mistress during an argument. It’s an accident. As a result of – or thanks to (?) – a particular set of circumstances, the evidence points towards somebody else: his best friend’s wife. Will his fear of being arrested, the consequences of his cowardice and the weight of his guilt force him to accept reality and give himself up?

Production is entrusted to Olivier Delbosc on behalf of Curiosa Films and to Films sous Influence (owned by the director). The 35-day film shoot, which kicked off in October, unfolded in the Sud and Ile-de-France regions, as well as in Châteauroux, with Rémy Chevrin heading up photography (who was nominated for the 2015 Best Cinematography Lumière by way of To Life [+see also:

, and is now on his 5th film with the director). The film’s full list of partners will be revealed at a later date.

For the record, Curiosa Films is overseeing post-production on André Téchiné’s Les pieds sur terre (read our news – in cinemas on 29 March 2023) and Delphine Deloget’s Rodéo (read our article – toplined by Virginie Efira).
