EIFF regular Damien Odoul (Errance, En attendant le deluge) returns with a crisply rendered exploration of a family’s dark secrets. When a young woman suspects that her biological father is a man she's never met, her stubborn effort to uncover the truth draws her sister into uncharted waters.... Odoul's characteristically elegant direction sets the stage for sterling work from the ensemble cast, which includes Emmanuelle Béart in a star turn as the sozzled, vindictive stepmother. An absorbing drama from one of France's most distinctive filmmakers.
