Movie Info

On the threshold of adulthood, 17-year-old Pierre becomes obsessed with his aunt Nadia (Béatrice Dalle). A flamboyant mathematician whose intellect clashes with her alcoholism and fatalistic view of life, Nadia is on a path to self-destruction. As Pierre discovers his budding sexuality, he attempts to rescue his beloved aunt from herself. Domain is a dark, sexy mediation on the intersection of two lives with very different trajectories. Featuring intelligent discourse and Hitchcockian references, filmmaker John Waters declared "you'll be left breathless by the sheer elegance of this astonishing workout." -- (C) Strand

[Dalle] commands the screen from the first frame, when she hosts a late-night, outdoor drinking fest and babbles on about how mathematics - and not words - create order.

You really can't hang a drama on a mathematical theory and expect it to serve as a shortcut for storytelling.

Chiha brings a knowledgeable weariness to his feature debut, as his story heads toward an end that feels familiar in all the right ways.

As a fiercely intelligent but helplessly self-destructive mathematician who's a bit too chummy with her teenage nephew, Dalle shows that, in her mid-40s, she's lost little of her dangerously feral allure.

A tender, tragic love story of sorts from first-time helmer Patric Chiha.
