Pascal Garnier, Emily Boyce
It’s a few days before Christmas in Versailles. Olivier has come to bury his mother, but the impending holidays and icy conditions have delayed the funeral. While trapped in limbo at his mother’s flat, a chance encounter brings Olivier back in touch with childhood friend Jeanne and her blind brother, Rodolphe. Rodolphe suggests they have dinner together, along with a homeless man he’s taken in. As the wine flows, dark secrets are spilled, and there’s more than just hangovers to deal with the next morning…
'The combination of sudden violence, surreal touches and bone-dry humour have led to Garnier's work being compared with the films of Tarantino.' Sunday Times 'A brilliant exercise in grim and gripping irony.' Sunday Telegraph 'Bleak, often funny and never predictable' The Observer 'For those with a taste for Georges Simenon or Patricia Highsmith.' The Independent
