Damien Bonnard (Les Miserables – COLCOA 2019) and Leïla Bekhti give tour-de-force performances in this tense, tender, often-heartbreaking portrait of a family torn apart by mental illness. Damien is an impassioned painter who happens to be bipolar. Leila spends her days worrying about him and trying to keep their little boy safe. Yet the film’s intimacy and incandescent moments of joy and love — and an up-close-and-personal camera style — provide warmth and specificity, rendering three extraordinarily complex characters in vivid, merciless detail.  The fact that the director’s own father suffered from bi-polar disorder partially explains the extraordinary level of truth in this beautiful, moving, very powerful film.
