(L' Origine du monde)

Director Laurent Lafitte

Jean-Louis, 42 years old, is a disenchanted upper-class lawyer who struggles to open up to his relatives, including his wife Valérie.

She tells Jean-Louis that he will only be saved from imminent death by facing an unthinkable taboo involving his mother, who he hasn't spoken to for the past few years...
