A Film by

Delphine LEHERICEY

2022 – Switzerland / Belgium – Dramedy

SYNOPSIS

Germain, an introspective retiree, abruptly becomes a widower at 75. He barely has the time to realize what has happened to him before his family forces their way into his daily life: non-stop phone calls and visits, meals and activities organized in advance – all meant to make his life as regular as clockwork. But Germain’s mind is elsewhere. Honoring a promise he made to his dear departed wife, he suddenly finds himself at the heart of a contemporary dance company’s newest work.


Adapted from Philippe Besson’s book Arrête avec tes Mensonges, originally published in France by Editions Julliard in 2017, which won the 2017 Maison de la Presse award and the 2017 Psychologies Award for inspiring novels. English language translation, Lie with Me copyright 2019 by Ringwald Inc.
