Une affaire privée

Une affaire privée

It’s been six months since Rachel Siprien disappeared. At the request of Rachel’s mother, private detective François takes over the investigation. The young woman’s personality, complex and multi-faced, is part of a strange network made-up of her best friend Clarisse, her ex-boyfriend, her stepfather, her neigbours and everyone who knowns her well or even sightly. François begins to frequent these various friends and acquaintances, and penetrates Rachel’s daytime and noctural habitat. He spies, asks disturbing questions, and fills in the blanks intentionally left by those he questions. His private life, already well complicated by an ex-wife and a mistress with a jealous husband, becomes more complicated by an affair with Clarisse and by problematic relations wih the police when Rachel’s body is found. François takes the blows, dishes some out and little by little puts together a picture of the real Rachel Siprien. Disappear means being eternally reborn”.

Jeux d’enfants

Jeux d’enfants

A whole life can pass by before someone’s capable of saying, “I love you.” Eighty years can go by before a love story begins. And all because of a game – or perhaps, thanks to a game. Sophie and Julien defined the rules of the game when they were young. For the rest of their lives, they’re referees – and often victims – of it. “Are you up to it?” “Sure!” They’re ready for anything: for better or worse. They flout all taboos, defy all restrictions, fly in the face of authority, laugh until it hurts. They’re ready for anything! Except perhaps to admit that they love each other. The game begins with an innocent bet. A bet made so as to forget that mum is very sick. A bet made so as to forget when the whole class calls you a dirty Polack. And a few bets later, the game becomes the best and most compelling thing in both of the children’s lives. They play, they love each other. Play, love. Love, play. In the end, it’s so much easier to just be friends. And so life goes by, the game remains, increasingly intense, like passion. And each time that they’re say “Sure!” they say, “I love you more than my own life.” “Sure!”
