"As witty as ever" Time Out.

Bernard (Chris Haywood) is an obsessive, as witnessed by his lifelong love affair with clocks. He earns his livelihood by finding, selling and repairing them. Although he is happily involved in a relationship with Terese (Gosia Dobrowolska), the wife of a clueless Salvation Army major, the discovery of a lock of golden hair in an antique cabinet opens up a new, dangerous, erotic obsession. Inspired by Guy de Maupassant's short story 'La Chevelure'.
