A child who disappeared ten years ago reappears much to his family's happiness.

Alix De Maistre made a very original movie,which went unnoticed ,which is a pity ;Although the story demanded a realistic treatment,she opted for a near-thriller verging on fantasy and horror.Almost all the scenes take place in dark rooms ,or at night,or on a path in the forest at misty or rainy dawns .The lighting effects ,in the gloomy hospital or in the new son's room create a disturbing atmosphere .The viewer himself always feels ill at ease because there is a sword of Damocles:at the time of Kaspar Hauser ,Victor the wild child or Anastasia (or at least when she was alive)there was no DNA.And the waiting is the hardest time.

Acting follows suit:Miou -Miou has never been so restrained and avoids pathos and melodrama.She looks like she's living in a dream,and she is ,anyway.

Some clues are given to the viewer but they remain obscure and the movie keeps its mystery even till the last pictures when Tony smiles sweetly as the car runs away.
