James and Olivier were supposed to spend a perfect holiday in the South of France, in Olivier’s holiday home, which is far from everything and everyone. That was before Caroline, an old friend of James’s arrived. She’s just been left by her boyfriend and James kindly offers temporary accomodation. Olivier is not to keen on it at first, yet finds himself more intrigued by Caroline the longer she stays. Caroline is very aware of the growingly tantalising effect she has on him. Olivier’s fascination sends him into the throes of reconsidering all he took for granted about his identity, and even the love he has for his boyfriend. Both of them let this unfold unbeknownst to James, who starts feeling more and more paranoid and isolated, and tries to cling on to the certainty of the love he’s felt for his boyfriend. This debut feature does a deft job at capturing stolen glances and an overwhelming sense of uncertainty. The lush environment quickly turns into a sultry, oppressive setting for the characters to start unraveling in this gripping story of manipulation, where fascination balances between the perverse and the beautiful.
