A man and a woman, secretly in love, alone in a room. They desire each other, want each other, even bite each other. In the afterglow, they share a few sweet nothings. The man at least seems to believe they were nothing. Now under investigation by the police and the courts, Julien fails to find the words. What happened? What is he accused of ?
“When he wrote this novel in 1963, in Epalinges in Switzerland, Simenon was in a phase of permanent self-flagellation, such as ‘Women are witches, I shouldn’t have done it.’ It is a novel of punishment regarding sexuality – or regarding his own exuberant sexuality. And with Stephanie Cléau – who adapted the novel with me – we tried to erase it as we could.” (Mathieu Amalric)
