Three children, brother and sisters, decide to kill their mother's lover, the village hairdresser. He is rehearsing Molière's "Don Juan" with their mother for the summer festival. They will become Don Juan and Elvire for a summer's night of music and fireworks. They embark on an affair. The children's father, an overworked doctor, realizes nothing. The children feel their childhood and the village order (even if it is a little crazy) are under threat. Something has to be done and fast. They devise a plan for the day of the public performance...


"This is my most autobiographical film. It's like coming full circle. I shot it in the same villages (those of my childhood) as "Le Destin de Juliette", my first feature film. As in the film, my sister, my brother and I, his twin, really wanted to kill our mother's lover who was indeed the village hairdresser. We hated him and saw him as the cause of all the problems in our parents marriage. In the film, the characters are very close to the true actors in the outlandish dramas that shook the village. As a child, I saw them as caricatures and that led me through the tragedy I was experiencing at the time, and shown in the film, to create comic characters."
