Synopsis:

COMEDY | DRAMA | ROMANCE:

A wonderful, whimsical film about stalking. Living in a picturesque country town in France, shy hairdresser Vincent [Kyan Khojandi] spends his time running his salon and dealing with his over-possessive mother [Anémone] and his sex maniac cousin Laurent [Philippe Rebbot]. One Sunday morning, Vincent experiences a strange sense of déjà-vu when he meets the gaze of a middle-aged shopkeeper Rosalie [Noémie Lvovsky ] and intrigued to work out why she’s familiar, he sets out to follow her in order to unravel the mystery. This random encounter changes the lives of Vincent, Rosalie and her estranged niece Aude [Alice Isaaz], who becomes entwined delightfully in the proceedings.

Based on the graphic novel trilogy by French artist Camille Jourdy, the story is split into three parts, one from each character’s perspective. This original and tender story is utterly charming and to avoid giving too much away, the less said the better.
