Um die Kontrolle über ihren fremdgehenden Ehemann zu behalten und an seiner Welt teilzuhaben, beschließt eine Frau, den wechselnden Affären ein konkretes Gesicht zu geben. Sie engagiert insgeheim eine Prostituierte als ständige Geliebte des Mannes und nutzt die Frau als Informantin. Zurückhaltende Beschreibung eines außergewöhnlichen Beziehungsdreiecks, in deren Verlauf die wechselseitige Abhängigkeit der beiden Frauen, die zwischen Komplizenschaft und Rivalität changiert, ins Zentrum rückt. Das in ruhigem Stil inszenierte Ehedrama lotet die Befindlichkeit der bürgerlichen Intimität aus und konfrontiert den Zuschauer mit einer Grauzone der Gefühle. [film-dienst]

Anni Sessanta. Bill Willis, veterano della Seconda Guerra Mondiale e adesso affermato scrittore, vive con la moglie Marcella, come lui americana, e la figlioletta Charlottanne (chiamata, in famiglia, Channe) a Parigi. I Willis adottano il piccolo Benoit, finito in un orfanotrofio dopoché la madre, alla sua nascita quindicenne, non aveva potuto occuparsene. Inizialmente, Channe è scontrosa con Benoit, che parla solo francese; ben presto, su invito di Bill, il piccolo sceglie di mutare il proprio nome in Billy. Sia Bill sia Marcella sono genitori attenti e scrupolosi in eguale misura verso i due bambini, che frequentano una severa scuola internazionale. Channe, gradualmente, supera le iniziali gelosie e accetta il fratellino. Un giorno, durante una scampagnata in Normandia con alcuni amici dei genitori, Channe subisce sgradite attenzioni sessuali da un ragazzino un po’ più grande di lei, Stephane. Trascorrono alcuni anni. Channe è adesso una graziosa adolescente: a scuola conosce Francis, un coetaneo stravagante con la passione per l’opera lirica. Tra Channe e Francis nasce una bella amicizia, che, però, dopo un certo periodo pare incrinarsi a causa dell’invadenza di lui quando lei frequenta altre persone. Bill, che sa di non stare bene (nella sua famiglia ricorrono malattie cardiache), decide di tornare in America con Marcella e i ragazzi. Poco prima della partenza, Francis confessa a Channe di essere da sempre innamorato di lei, ma la ragazza non lo contraccambia. Giunti in America, Channe e Billy, che nel frattempo è divenuto un ragazzo timido e un po’ ombroso, fanno fatica ad ambientarsi nella nuova scuola. Channe si concede con troppa facilità ai coetanei; poi, conosce Keith, un bravo ragazzo con cui inizia una relazione più solida. Dopo la morte di Bill, Marcella consegna a Billy il diario scritto da sua madre durante la gravidanza, invitando il ragazzo a incontrare la genitrice naturale: ma Billy non sembra entusiasta dell’eventualità

2 editions published in 2007 in German and French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Leben eines jungen Paars in Südfrankreich läuft aus dem Ruder, als der Chef des Mannes mit seiner Frau zu Besuch kommt und diese nichts unversucht lässt, die Ehe der Gastgeber zu zerrütten. Sie sät Zweifel an der Treue des Mannes und begeht in dessen Gästezimmer Selbstmord, wobei ihr unseliger Geist auf die jüngere Frau überzugehen scheint. Virtuos jongliert das subversive Ehedrama mit Krimi-, Thriller- und Horror-Elementen und erzählt vom Einbruch (selbst-)zerstörerischer Elemente in eine bürgerliche Existenz. Voller psychologischer Finessen, oszilliert der Film zwischen Realität, Wunsch- und Albtraum und bringt seine Wirkung dank des virtuosen Zusammenspiels der Darsteller zur Entfaltung. [film-dienst]

"Jacob Berger's film shows a day in the life of a family. People meet and leave, and wonder, will they find themselves again? At daybreak, Serge believes he has committed a crime, Pietra realises that she has been betrayed around midday. At one o'clock 8-year-old Vlad feels lovesick for the first time. The day is spent observing, looking, avoiding and meeting each other. One day, three different perspectives: the same evening twilight, the same loneliness. And here is always the stranger who crosses their path. How will Serge, Pietra and Vlad find each other?"--Vega Films website (last viewed Dec. 6, 2011)
