A Feature film by Frédéric Sojcher

Release in France : 20/11/2002


    A tragedy in the shadows and beneath the sun.

    In the darkness of a theater, two young actors rehearse a play written by a director. It is the story of a blazing passion: he crosses paths with her in the university toilets, she takes him on vacation to her father's place, on a Greek island, not far from paradise.

    A Greek island, not far from hell... he thought he'd found sunshine with her, but she resists his advances. Just what is she playing at?

    He meets her father, an adventurer who owns a major part of the island, treats his family and everyone else like puppets, and spends his nights playing dominos with a painter friend. The artist flees the light and locks himself up in his house, hidden from sight. They are spied on by the father's ex-girlfriend, who watches their slightest gesture. What terrible secrets are they hiding?

    At the theater, the director cultivates mystery. As the rehearsals progress, the actors slowly become aware of the darkness lurking inside their characters.

    Beneath the Greek sun, the vacation becomes a nightmare: the painter is found dead in his house. Someone filmed the murder? For whom? For what reason?

    The director seems to be personally implicated in this Greek tragedy where love and vengeance are played out in the shadows and beneath the sun.
