The story relates what can happen when parents unexpectedly abandon their children. Super acting by Andrew Robertson as Jack and Charlotte Gainsbourg as Julie. With their parents dead, it is the older sister and the sexually curious younger brother who adjust to the reality of social rules and regulations which demand the family. Jack and Julie assume the role of parents. However, their acceptance promotes sexual emotions and not parental responsibilities. Eventually, the older sister's involvement with an admirer threatens their secret but developing incest relationship.
A bit disturbing but a good movie nonetheless. I especially liked the detached narration while Jack read his book.
