Movie Info

The relationship between a dutiful wife and her incarcerated husband grows increasingly complicated with the arrival of a curious third party in director Jean-Pascal Hattu's emotional take on a most unusual love triangle. Ma´tÚ (ValÚrie Donzelli)'s imposing Mediterranean husband Vincent (Bruno Todeschini) is currently locked-up behind bars. Though the loving wife does indeed visit her jailed husband on a regular basis, her commitment to a monogamous relationship is drawn into question as Ma´tÚ slowly becomes involved in an intimate affair with meek prison guard Jean (Cyril Troley). Though initially put off by the advances of the soft-spoken Jean, Ma´tÚ soon finds her motherly instincts taking hold as she earns her keep as a part-time babysitter and eventually allows her fragile emotional guard to be broken. When Ma´tÚ learns that her newfound lover is recording their encounters for the benefit of Vincent - who has explicitly enlisted the aid of Jean in doing so - the motivations of all three are drawn into question while Ma´tÚ weighs her sense of fidelity against her inherent need for sexual gratification. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovimore

Exhibits a familiar trace of the Dardennes' observational astringency.

The film's ideas are intriguing but Hattu, who makes his directing debut here and co-wrote the script, fails to completely bring his material into focus.

I kept waiting for some huge revelation, but it never came.
