70-year-old Shauna is free and independent and has put her love life to one side. But she is disturbed by the presence of Pierre, a 45-year-old man she had briefly met years earlier.
Contrary to all expectations, Pierre doesn't see her as “a woman of a certain age”, but a desirable woman he is not afraid of falling in love with.
Except that Pierre has a wife and children.
Carine Tardieu
After audiovisual studies in Paris, Carine Tardieu worked as an assistant director on several films and TV dramas, then as a television scriptwriter. Between 2002 and 2004, she made two short films which won awards in several international festivals: Les baisers des autres, and L'aîné de mes soucis. The two films launched the collection of novelised screenplays “Ciné-roman” at Actes Sud Junior, where Carine Tardieu published two other youth novels. She was spotted by Christophe Rossignon who, in 2007, produced her first feature, La tête de maman, co-written with Michel Leclerc. For her second feature, she adapted the novel Du vent dans mes mollets (The Dandelions) with its author, Raphaële Moussafir. Her third feature, Otez-moi d'un doute (Just to be Sure) was selected at the Directors' Fortnight in 2017.
