Antoine and Laurent, old friends, spend their vacation in Corsica with their respective daughters: seventeen-year-old Louna and eighteen-year-old Marie. One evening at the beach, Louna seduces Laurent. Louna is in love, but for Laurent it was nothing more than a momentary distraction. Without revealing her lover's name, Louna confides in her father, who tries by any means to discover who his daughter's lover is. How long will the secret be able to be kept hidden?Written by

One of the best French movies I watched this summer.
Had to do it in chunks, though: the emotions were so overwhelming I had to stop my player every 15 minutes or so just to catch my breath.
I dunno, probably it's because of my age (about 50, male) that I relate so closely to that story.
Certain scenes and dialogs seem a bit exaggerated but that's French comedy for you. Snobish movie critics can boil their head but I don't regret for a minute that I spent well over two hours watching it; will recommend it to all my buddies.
On a side note: After seeing the movie, it would be probably a good idea to read the interview with Vincent Cassel (Paris Match #3449, Jun 25 - Jul 01, 2015, pp.9-11) where he talks about his character in that film.
