Storyline

A young woman uses as an excuse his father's funeral to find a neighbor rather charming, and tries to understand why she interrupted the love affair began with him a few months earlier. They find and replay the scene where his evasion prevented their history started. They try it, wrestle, grapple, while approaching. They rub, bump against each other and have fun to interact with as fancy as gravity, and into a struggle more and more physical. They will eventually bind to each other during daily sessions that resemble a game. Beyond their verbal sparring, this confrontation becomes necessary to try to find a curious ritual that they can not escape. Gradually, it will be obvious that something is released between them, so these struggles are finally becoming a real struggle for love. Written by jsanchez

A strange take on the theme of a young woman coping with unresolved issues after her father dies, we somehow end up watching her engage in a series of wrestling matches with a man who lives near her father's home. These fights are staged as some kind of therapy, though of course they turn out to be very sexual. To be honest, I was more interested in ogling Sara Forestier than in contemplating the lengthy conversations outlining the whole psychodrama, so I can't really judge how plausible all this is. But she and Thierrée deserve credit for putting in very physical performances, and the director has created an original erotic scenario.
