Synopsis
The intertwining lives of four young people are laid bare in Audiard’s erotically charged drama, adapted from the graphic novels of Adrian Tomine. Intimately shot in soft-focus monochrome, it follows call centre employee Emilie, who rents a room to Camille, an African man struggling to complete his doctorate. He meets Nora, a timid law student who is mistaken for Amber Sweet, a pornographic actress. As boundaries are crossed and relationships entangled, Audiard sketches a vibrant portrait of Paris’ eclectic community.
