A gripping drama starring Laetitia Dosch (Jeune Femme) and adapted from Annie Ernaux’s best-selling novel Passion simple (Simple Passion). Danielle Arbid’s film crafts a portrait of an addictive relationship between a mysterious Russian diplomat and a mother, whose psyche progressively dissolves as she falls for a man with whom she has nothing in common outside their intense physical relationship.
