Nuclear romance

Two of France’s hottest young acting talents headline this blue-collar love triangle from young writer/director Rebecca Zlotowski. A Prophet’s Tahar Rahim plays Gary, a day labourer who finds work in a nuclear power station and is as casual about the daily dangers of radiation as he is about those he sleeps with.

As he falls for Karole (Léa Seydoux), the passionate and provocative fiancé to older co-worker Toni (Denis Ménochet), so begins an affair with an intense half-life. Hot off Blue Is The Warmest Colour, Seydoux again offers a frank turn, while Rahim and Ménochet add real class.
