Mathilde (ALIAS BETTY's Sandrine Kiberlain), a pretty, young Parisian married to a successful surgeon, is undergoing a crisis. She steals toys in department stores, faints for no apparent reason, goes AWOL from her job, and is unable to let her husband Nico (FRIDAY NIGHT's Vincent Lindon) satisfy her sexually. She is then mysteriously approached by an eccentric therapist who offers hypnosis and feng shui as a solution. Once her husbandwho is used to dealing with illness in a clinically rational and logical mannerrealizes that she has achieved a kind of metamorphosis, he begins to experience an identity crisis of his own... In this follow-up to his highly acclaimed A SINGLE GIRL, Benoît Jacquot shows a keen understanding of marital power dynamics--the funny, poignant, strange dance of two lovers growing in different directions, each at a different pace, in order to rediscover each other.
