One day, a young couple, Michelle and Jean, inherit the mansion in Montmartre that faces their small apartment. This astounding gift comes from their mysterious neighbour, the lawyer Mr. Guillemet. He calls it “a donation to youth and love”. This would have been perfect, if it weren’t for two untouchable conditions. The strange housekeeper, Clémence, must stay employed for as long as she desires and all the old man’s personal papers and photos must be kept intact. Soon, a mysterious triangular love story develops between the young couple and this strange, perverse and almost obsessive onlooker. Facing is a dark thriller and a passionate love story by first time director Mathias Ledoux and screenwriter Valérie Guignabodet. Jean-Hugues Anglade (37°2 Le Matin, Nikita, La Reine Margot) portrays the struggling writer Jean. Clotilde Courau (Le Petit Criminel, L’Appat, Promenons-nous dans les bois) plays the fragile Michelle. Christine Boisson (Identificazione di una donna, Exterieur Nuit, Pas très catholique) is the enigmatic housemaid Clémence and the manipulative Mr. Guillemet is a part by José Garcia (Elisa, Beaumarchais l’insolent, Que la lumière soit).
