L'Ennui

Charles Berling plays Martin, a 40-something philosophy teacher in the throes of a mid-life crisis. This takes a turn when he begins an affair with Cecilia (Sophie Guillemin), a young woman half his age. At first, the relationship is purely physical, however, Martin soon finds himself driven to the brink of insanity when he realizes that he cannot possess her. When Cecilia admits to another lover, Martin's jealousy erupts and his life spirals out of control. Director Cedric Kahn's steamy, darkly funny tale co-stars Arielle Dombasle, Robert Kramer, Alice Grey, and Maurice Antoni.
