Synopsis

French auteur Jacques Rivette directs this drama starring Jerzy Radziwilowicz and Emmanuelle Béart. A combination of romantic drama and supernatural thriller, the film follows forty-something loner Julien (Radziwilowicz) and his mysterious ex-lover Marie (Béart) as they slowly rekindle their relationship after a year apart and a complex history together. Julien, who is blackmailing the rich and enigmatic fake antique dealer Madame X (Anne Brochet), becomes increasingly unsettled by Marie's strange and distant behaviour. It transpires that only Madame X holds the key to unlock Marie's terrible and devastating secret...
