Maxim (Artem Alexeiev) is a young Muscovite who journeys from Russia to the south of France to visit his mother in her home amidst the lofty mountains of Montagne Sainte-Victoire. He finds her in poor health and is overwhelmed with grief when she abruptly passes away. In the throes of mourning, he reconnects with his French half-sister Marie Louise (Adele Exarchopoulos), whom he hardly saw. Despite the language barrier and accustomed estrangement, the pair grows closer through their shared sense of loss.
Based on a novel by Nicolas Planchais, the film by Kosyrev-Nesterov features 2013 Palme d’Or winner Adèle Exarchopoulos, the young French actress whose memorable breakthrough role came in Abdellatif Kechiche’s Blue is the Warmest Color (2013).
Directed and written by: Mikhail Kosyrev-Nesterov
