A reclusive French musician is visited in her remote manor house by a young grieving Englishman who is seeking to uncover secrets about his late father’s past.
A lyrical mystery drama, Charles Garrad’s spellbinding feature debut stars Northern Irish actor Colin Morgan (Merlin, Testament of Youth) and one of French cinema’s most celebrated performers, Fanny Ardant (The Woman Next Door).
A coming-of-age story filmed on location in the south of France and urban England, it centres on a young man, Paul who – compelled by grief and curiosity – is keen to find out more about his late father’s life. Visiting the mysterious, melancholic Madeleine, a musician, in her magnificently crumbling, secluded manor house, she reveals some disturbing secrets about both his father’s past and his own.
