Jean-Christophe Buisson: "A man and two women"


CHRONICLE - A hairy man who was thought to be dead reappears. Two women pretend that he is their man. A moving first film.

Julie Delaunay (Leïla Bekhti) runs a photo studio.

Emancipated, she earns a good living, but suffers atrociously: her husband has not returned from the front.

Neither alive nor dead.

Against the advice of those close to her, she is convinced that he is still alive.

A case except isolated: were not 300,000 French soldiers declared missing between 1914 and 1918?

When the photo of an amnesic ex-hairy man found on a station platform appears in a newspaper, joy and relief overwhelm her: it's her man!

But she's the only one who knows for sure.

Neither his brother-in-law, nor the doctors, nor the interested party himself share his certainty.

Especially when another woman arrives, Rose-Marie (Louise Bourgoin), a sensual cabaret singer by trade, advancing equally decisive arguments: this man, no doubt possible, is her companion at work, at night and in life.

The match of lovers can begin - disturbing, indecisive, fascinating, cruel.

An excellent idea
