OT: Les Intranquilles
Leïla and Damien love each other very much. He lives according to the rhythm of his bipolar disorder, and Leïla is by his side. Until one day she sees the next manic crisis coming: Damien's mood swings increase, the excesses as well as his unbounded enthusiasm. Once again, life seems far too narrow for him. While Damien implodes, his relationship explodes. Leïla reaches her own limits and can barely juggle her roles as lover, wife, mother and nurse.
After AFTER LOVE, Belgian director Joachim Lafosse weaves a sensitively precise and touchingly intimate reflection around the question of how much emotional earthquake a relationship can withstand.
An impressively masterful drama, carried by the instinctive Leila Bekthi, but above all by Damien Bonnard's incredible acting, dizzying in its precision. (Paris Match).
THE RESTLESS premiered in competition at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival.
