comment and considerations by Riccardo Costantini
and Mathias Énard

Mila and Javier are both heart surgeons. Married for ten years, they would be a happy couple were it not for the fact that Javier has an alcohol issue that ends up causing him to leave the hospital where he works. Mila, convinced that he is just going through a bad patch, supports him and helps him however she can. When she finds out she’s pregnant (she had never thought of having a child), the new prospect upsets the balance in their relationship. Javier’s alcohol addiction thus becomes a real threat…
