QUéBEC, Canada | 91 minutes | 2011

Giving voice to a generation of anxious, rudderless young adults, the filmmaker creates a portrait of Nikolai and Clara. After meeting at a club, they get together and have sex. The unexpected aftermath is a night of talking and musing about their anxieties, lives and era. The antithesis of the classic romantic comedy, and a painful huis-clos on the malaise of early middle age, this debut feature established Anne Émond as a unique and essential voice in contemporary Quebec cinema.
