The latest from French filmmaker Alain Guiraudie is an eccentric urban farce combining true love and terrorism. While jogging through the streets of Clermont-Ferrand one day, Mederic (Jean-Charles Clichet) has a chance encounter with middle-aged sex worker Isadora (Noémie Lvovsky) and is instantly smitten. Declaring his disdain for sex as commerce, since he doesn’t believe in using people, Isadora seems intrigued by his ardor, inviting him for a rendez-vous after her shift ends. During their encounter, a terrorist attack interrupts their pleasure, and Isadora’s jealous husband Gerard (Renaud Rutten) comes to collect her.
