QUéBEC/CANADA | 97 minutes | 2018

University dermatology professor Marie-Claire is a strong-willed woman. She lives her sexuality freely, which some consider subversive. As she embarks on a research project on skin cells and sexual arousal, her personal and professional lives collide with unexpected results. Renée Beaulieu's second feature is an exploratory work that questions the traditional patterns of domination. Its title in the form of a poetic enigma lends itself to the volatile storyline, as intimate as it is highly topical. Always on the lookout for demanding characters, Brigitte Poupart gives everything she has to this role.
