Three twentysomethings come together to create a wholehearted ménage à trois in this playfully erotic tale that sparks with the restless energy of the French New Wave. In a richly filmed black-and-white Los Angeles, each member of the threesome is in transition: fun-loving Marcello from under the thumb of his Italian soap star father, soulful French-Iranian actor Nassim toward a more fulfilling career, and artist Christine through the grief following the death of her grandfather. But the frolicsome trio finds joy and release together—exploring their sexuality, joining political protests, making art, and falling deeper into their unconventional amour— until Marcello must return to Italy which threatens the delicate balance of their relationship.Renowned cinematographer Svetlana Cvetko captures the trajectory of this love affair with a deliciously modern JULES ET JIM flair, combining tenderness, artistry, and three breakthrough performances.
