Lie With Me

When he is invited to be brand ambassador for a cognac label celebrating its 200th anniversary, acclaimed novelist Stéphane Belcourt (Guillaume de Tonquédec) returns to his hometown for the first time in decades. On discovering that one of the organisers of his trip is his first lover’s son (Victor Belmondo), emotional memories of a secret adolescent passion come flooding back. The poisonous atmosphere of the town the boys grew up in and their necessarily repressed desires unsettle Stéphane. But as feelings of guilt and desire clash with unprocessed grief and other emotional wounds, many of which Stéphane grappled with in his first novel, the present is about to throw up more complications about this pivotal love affair. Directed by Olivier Peyon, based on the novel by Philippe Besson.
