Between his friends and the family business, Arnaud's summer looks set to be a peaceful one. Peaceful until he runs into Madeleine, as beautiful as she is brusque, a concrete block of tensed muscles and doomsday prophecies. He expects nothing; she prepares for the worst. He takes things as they come, likes a good laugh. She fights, runs, swims, pushes herself to the limit. Given she hasn't asked him for anything, just how far will he go along with her? It's a love story. Or a story of survival. Or both. Written by Directors' Fortnight

I did not know I was going to see and I do not know what I've seen
30 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

A movie that the more frames I see the more I want it to end. I really do not know what he wants to tell me. I think that neither the actors nor the director know where they want to go. The main actor does not tell me anything and she falls pretty bad and the worst thing is that does not improve the situation over time, I can not empathize with them, so it is difficult that I like the movie. If what the director wanted was that the actors were not attractive, if he succeeded.

There comes a time that also does not advance the story until it finally ends, the best of the film, is over.

It has no direction, no tone, no planning, no where to go. The photograph, it seems that they were not very interested in this department either.
