September 30, 2017

Secrets and lies mount in Luc Bondy's final feature when the widow Araminte's (Isabelle Huppert) penniless accountant (Louis Garrel) teams up with her servant (Yves Jacques) to trick her into falling in love with him. Filmed partly at Paris' Théâtre de l'Odéon, Bondy weaves stage and screen together to create a unique, 21st century take on Marivaux's classic comedy of errors.
