Pierre and Lucie are siblings who feel as though their bodies are two halves of a whole. They share everything, from their time spent away from home to their sexual conquests amongst friends. When they are not discussing their intimate thoughts and emotions, they play in their rock band, go to clubs, get drunk, and share their bodies amongst a close-knit group of friends. As adolescent urges and hormonal impulses reach boiling point, tensions begin to fray. One night, Pierre does not come home. With Lucie growing ever more desperate to find him, and rumours of a brutal crime circulating, she is devastated to learn of his murder. Disillusioned with the efforts of the local police, Lucie decides to take matters into her own hands, using her new found sexual powers to obtain answers in a perverse microcosm of a teen society that has until now remained out of sight, out of mind.
Disappointing and a wasted opportunity.

This is one of those movies that is visually attractive with a good looking cast. Characters spend a lot of time lounging around in the nude, sulking, dawdling, brooding, lost in thought. It’s as though the director is trying to convey a feeling of eroticism and sexual tension, but, unfortunately, it doesn’t succeed as the story (based on true events), script and performances failed to hold my attention. It is generally a slow and quiet film and I found myself not caring much about the characters or interested in who had murdered Lucie’s brother. The style of the film also doesn’t aid it’s coherence as the events do not occur in chronological order which leads to some confusion about what the purpose of the film is.
