Pascale is the all-powerful mother of two rowdy layabouts. Her sons, Thierry and François, tease each other, fight and enjoy a great intimacy. Pascale's ex-husband owns the house but, under the civil code, she is permitted to live there until her death, at which time ownership devolves to their sons. The ex has made a new life for himself and acts as little more than a bank for his progeny. Seeking an emotional connection, Pascale hooks up with a local baker but when he is introduced to her boys, they react with disdain and violence. Lafosse has a disarmingly naturalistic style, at times reminiscent of John Cassavetes. He uses this uncomfortable intimacy to trap his characters in cathartic situations that elicit profound and revelatory explosions of emotion. (Noah Cowan )
