The Witnesses - Poster - France


    Twenty-year-old Manu arrives in Paris looking for work. He settles into his sister’s place. Julie is studying to be an opera singer and makes an effort to keep a distance between herself and her invasive brother. Manu often goes out at night, frequenting singles clubs. He meets Adrien, a gay doctor in his fifties. Extroverted and cultivated, Adrien introduces Manu to a whole new lifestyle. During a boat outing with Adrien, Manu meets a young, married couple, Mehdi and Sarah. Mehdi is a cop, Sarah is a writer. The happiness of this atypical couple seems to be emphasized by the birth of their child. But things aren’t quite what they seem. Manu’s arrival in Paris and his intrusion into the lives of Julie, Adrien, Mehdi, and Sarah will shake up the emotional lay of the land like an earthquake. Without wanting to, without knowing it, Manu causes everyone to reveal their true desires.
