The scene is set one Summer in La Ciotat, a town near Marseille which used to be prosperous thanks to its huge dockyard but has been in decline since its closing 25 years before. It is in this context of quiet desperation that a writing workshop has been set up to help a group of seven young people integrate into the world of work. Under the guidance of well-known novelist Olivia Dejazet, the participants are asked to write a noir fiction connected with the industrial past of their hometown. Session after session, one of them, a boy named Antoine, stands out. Provocative and aggressive, he gets noticed by his systematic opposition to all, including Olivia. Even more alarming, the story he has devised and that he reads aloud, the cold description of a mass murder seen through the eyes of its perpetrator, proves very disturbing. Antoine understands the killer too well. At this point, Olivia starts experiencing a feeling of attraction repulsion to Antoine.

Excellent gritty film that concentrates on a few strong performances! Mamadou Doumbia and Matthieu Lucci stole the show. Cinematography was amazing and the rest of the cast each played their part very well.

All the actors made the characters breathe an essence which is integral to the script and the director captured it the best way possible. But Marina Foïs is definitely the soul of this movie.

Perfect film for a movie night. It's intense, has plenty of action and great story. Mamadou Doumbia was good but Matthieu Lucci was most impressive. Great performance from both. Very confident.
