***Love crime story following the effects of the irrational attraction between a man and a woman in a small town. 

Dense interplay of action planes from the same character create a work that demands all attention and pays back in terms of arousing curiosity. 

  • Poetry of intense crosscutting matching the undetermined path of events in the lives of lovers gone rogue;    
  • Great minimalistic mise en scene and framing create separate layers for Amalric’s intense gaze;
  • No final resolution; character motives hover on the line between sexual tension, small town boredom and adulthood’s borderless horizon; 
  • In the beginning La Chambre Bleue is the lover’s meeting place; in the end it’s the courtroom where they’re being tried.

Mathieu Amalric is a bomb, a French Klaus Kinski.
