Synopsis

After 10 years abroad, Catherine returns to Luxembourg to catch up with her daughter Alba, brought up by Catherine’s mother Elisabeth. But Alba is cold and distant with this stranger showing up unexpectedly in her life, and so is Elisabeth, keen to keep her protégée to herself.

Our take

Working with renowned cinematographer Hélène Louvart and chronicling three generations of women, director Laura Schroeder expertly creates an atmosphere of eerie unease in this subtly suspenseful and foreboding family drama. Starring real-life mother-daughter duo Isabelle Huppert and Lolita Chammah!
