The two men confront each other in the presence of Blanche, the housekeeper, who overwhelms Max. But what Max wants is revenge. He wants to humiliate his brother...
This film is a post mortem. The body being autopsied is the corpse of love, the love of a mother who goes so far as to sacrifice one of her sons, just as Abraham was about to sacrifice Isaac. It is also the love of a man for a woman who is, unfortunately, his brother’s wife. And finally it’s the love of an old woman for a younger man who drops in on her life unexpectedly and arouses a host of dormant feelings. “Préférence” is a therefore a love story. Or more precisely, a story of loves. (Grégoire Delacourt)
