Screenwriter: Ira Sachs, Mauricio Zacharias


Celebrated filmmaker Ira Sachs (Love is Strange) makes a breathtaking return with a fresh, honest and brutally funny take on the twisty labyrinth of human relationships. German filmmaker Tomas (Franz Rogowski, Undine) and his husband Martin (Ben Whishaw, No Time to Die) are living an enviable, comfortable life in Paris. But Tomas is restless after finishing his latest film, and carelessly dives into a passionate affair with a sexy young Parisian schoolteacher named Agathe (Adèle Exarchopoulos, Blue Is the Warmest Color). Torn between his gentle husband and his earthy new lover, Tomas flails wildly, unsure of who he is and what will make him happy. A brilliant update on the cinema of the French New Wave, where love is the subject, conversation is the action, and the drama of desire plays out on the atmospheric back streets of Paris. “Generously tender….the kind of love triangle that rings true because we aspire to its sexier moments but see ourselves in its most selfish ones.” – Christian Zilko, IndieWire.
