Le Refuge Film Poster


François Ozon directs this French drama. After her lover Louis (Melvil Poupaud) dies from a drug overdose, Mousse (Isabelle Carre, who was actually pregnant at the time of filming) discovers that she is expecting his baby. Grieving for Louis and still struggling with her addiction to the drugs that killed him and landed her in hospital, Mousse leaves Paris for a remote house on the French coast in an attempt to straighten herself out. There she leads a solitary existence until Louis's gay brother Paul (Louis-Ronan Choisy) turns up uninvited, and through the unlikely bond that develops between them Mousse finally achieves a degree of closure over Louis's death.
