"Daring and inventive" Roger Ebert.

A dark love story between a brilliant biology student and a master swindler. Claire is a good girl living a mundane lifestyle until she meets literature-quoting con artist, Jack, played by Oscar-winner Adrian Brody (THE PIANIST, THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL). When a detective begins closing in on his latest caper, Jack is forced to give Claire the cold shoulder. Heartbroken, Claire starts down a spiralling road of self-destruction.

WINNER: 3 Awards including Silver Leopard at Locarno International Film Festival
