From the visionary mind of François Ozon comes this one-of-a-kind gender-bending melodrama, which both shocks and delights in equal measure. After mourning the loss of Laura, the soft-spoken Claire comes across Laura’s husband David dressed head-to-toe in his wife’s clothes. Unsure whether his new guise is the result of foul play, she threatens to reveal David to Laura’s family. But the more time she spends with him, the more Claire becomes seduced by his beautiful new incarnation. As the two become inseparable, Claire wonders whether she is falling for David’s alter ego, or perhaps a part of Laura’s resurrected soul.
