If you’re prepared to embrace it, love will enter your life without knocking. How will that heady, sweet passion affect you? What if it’s evasive and fickle as well? Emmanuel Mouret pays tribute to the French tradition of unassailable romance and proves that, when it comes to treating romantic subject matter, the French are way out in front.


Synopsis

Daphné’s boyfriend has promised to spend time with her on holiday in the country yet, in his absence, she finds herself in the company of his cousin Maxime instead. Their initial diffidence gives way to a shared intimacy that gradually develops as they swap tales of their romantic adventures. It becomes apparent that, if you’re prepared to embrace it, love will enter your life without knocking. How will that heady, sweet passion affect you? What if it’s evasive and fickle as well? Will it bring a new dimension to your existence or will it become a painful void? Paying tribute to the French tradition of unassailable romance, Emmanuel Mouret relates the stories of individuals driven by a sense of yearning and demonstrates that, when it comes to treating romantic subject matter, the French are way out in front.
