Remy is morose, nearing 30 with his career as a musician going nowhere and his eight-year marriage to Martine souring. Then, Martine dies in a car crash, and Marion, her 14-year-old, wants to stay rather than move to her father's. Remy likes the idea: he loves her, he's raised her, and she offers him emotional responsibility. Marion's father objects, but she's willful, so he relents. Soon, she tells Remy she finds him attractive, that she's now "a woman," and why can't they be lovers. Remy is appalled, but weakens, missing her when she spends Christmas with her dad. What if they do become lovers? What next? And what if a women more his age enters the picture?
Boasting a superb lead performance by Patrick DeWaere as a young Frenchman battling to stifle the seductive advances of his breathtakingly beautiful step-daughter, it is grounded by fascinating character detail and an intelligent, focused script that is deeply interested in the complexities of love and desire. Ariel Besse is the step-daughter and she is a bubbling, nubile cauldron of curiosity and mischief. Sacha Vierny's moody photography is worthy of a coffee table hardcover and Philip Sarde's score is perfection.
La compagne de Rémi meurt accidentellement et la fille de cette dernière, Marion, 14 ans, préfère rester vivre chez lui plutôt que de retourner chez son père naturel. Malgré ses réticences, Rémi cède au désir amoureux de sa bellefille qui le harcèle et finit par coucher avec elle. Quand il rencontre Charlotte, Marion s'efface.

The sound is akin to Mike Oldfield from his "QE2" period, and there are Latino guitars and bagpipes that create a very strong sense of place especially in a European sense.
Peter Hammill is one of the formative characters of the progressive rock scene to date. In the beginning of the 1970's he recorded four cumbersome mysterious albums with his band Van der Graaf Generator which never could reach the commercial heights of cognate bands like Genesis or Yes due to their musical intransigence. After several visionary but difficult to access albums, Hammill reformed the quartet for another four albums which introduced a more earthy but not less complex sound. After the band's second end in 1978, on solo albums like "The Future Now", "ph7" or "A Black Box" Hammill experimented extensively in the studio and acquired the latest techniques like i.e. early forms of sampling; one of the most breath-taking results being the 20 minute long soundscape 'Flight'…
