Finding each other was just the beginning.

The award-winning debut feature from writer/director Alix Delaporte is an arresting and intimate drama about two lost souls in search of human connection.

Angèle (Clotilde Hesme) is a young woman falling apart. Returned to the seaside town of Normandy after a two-year absence, she is fiercely determined to reconnect with her young son, yet also scared she’s unfit to take care of him. Tony (Gregory Gadebois) is a fisherman who lives with his widowed mother, trapped in emotional solitude.

The two meet via a personal ad; Angèle is forthright and rough, and her attempts to seduce him are met with surprise: Tony literally can’t believe his luck…

With her quiet, intimate approach, Delaporte allows the actors to shine, and the pitch-perfect, wholly naturalistic performances from Hesme and Gadebois elevate this absorbing and sensitive drama, as does the magnificent coastal scenery.
