Sixteen year-old Alex capsizes his boat and is rescued by David who is several years’ older than him. It is the start of a friendship that quickly develops into something more. David is everything Alex dreams about but a British au-pair turns awe and lust into suspicion and jealousy. A film which is sad, wonderful and puzzling in equal parts by the productive master director, François Ozon.
