Nicolas Maury (Call My Agent!) directs and stars alongside French icon Nathalie Baye in the bittersweet tale of a highly-strung actor and his doting mother.
Parisian actor Jérémie Meyer’s life is falling apart. He’s just been overlooked for a prized film role, and his fed-up boyfriend has called time on their relationship. Wracked by uncontrollable jealousy – “I feed on my own poison” – Jérémie escapes to his mother’s house in the lush woodlands of Saint-Auvent in Limousin. Can he find new romance with mum’s hunky new assistant? Or will his insecurities prove too much for even his adoring mother to bear? This frank and wickedly funny human drama features marvellous performances by Maury as the fragile son and Baye as the supportive mother whose slowly revealed past brings rich emotional complexity.
A bittersweet comedy-drama that manages to be hilarious in one scene and extremely touching in the next.
