About this movie

Admitted to a rehabilitation center after a serious ski accident, Tony (Emmanuelle Bercot) becomes dependent on the medical staff and pain relievers while looking back on a turbulent relationship she experienced with megalomaniac Georgio (Vincent Cassel). Who is this man that she loved so deeply, and how did she allow herself to submit to this suffocating and destructive passion? For Tony, the physical work of healing may finally set her free.

It's difficult to say I loved this movie due to the themes but it's worth the 5 stars, the amount of stress I felt following their tumultuous relationship was palpable. It was so wonderfully portrayed by Bercot and Cassel that I was entranced from the start. I would recommend this film to anyone and especially as point of reference to an accurate portrayal of domestic emotional abuse. The agonizing amount of gaslighting kept me rooting for Tony (Bercot) until the end.

Absolutely beautiful film. Astonishingly acted, humorous in many parts, but mostly very dark and sad (if you'v ever been in an imbalanced relationship). Highly recommended and will likely purchase so I can re-watch over time.
