A policeman intent on freeing a crooked businessman from a prison on Gomera, an island in the Canaries. However, he must first learn the difficult local dialect, a language which includes hissing and spitting.
The trailer was classically misleading. I did not expect a pale remake of Providence (Alain Resnais, 1977). In short, 1) Sibyl has a few undisclosed skeletons in the closet and manages them while drinking abusively. 2) Sibyl is a shrink and the border between her private life and her professional life does not exist. 3) Sibyl is a writer and she draws inspiration from her own surroundings and, given the two previous points, fiction and reality are quickly confused, for Sibyl first and for the audience even more. Although the three actresses Virginie Efira, Sandra Hüller and Adèle Exarchopoulos are awesome, this story of a lost woman suffering of emotional distress is globally boring.
