Synopsis by Clarke Fountain

This is a highly symbolic French drama in which truth and fantasy seem to mingle. When Mathieu's (Sami Frey) wife (Brigitte Fossey) picks him up at the hospital and drops him off at an apartment, he is left alone while she returns home to their son. When she sees her husband again, he confesses to her that he loves another woman. Curiously, the woman is identical to his wife. The other woman comes to him, makes love, and leaves. She returns again and he shoots her only to find he has shot a mirror.
