“Disquieting yet alluring Claire Millaud (Juliette Binoche), a 50 year old university professor and single mother of two, creates a fake social media profile: ‘Clara Antunes’, a young and beautiful woman half her age. Claire tells us her stories through conversations with her therapist, Catherine Bormans (Nicole Garcia). Immersing herself and floating in the virtual world of exchanges, middle-age Claire becomes young imaginary Clara, full of ‘dangerous liaisons’ and manipulation games. Adapted from Camille Laurens’s novel Who You Think I Am (Celle que vous croyez), this vertiginous drama and entertaining thriller perfectly captures Laurens’s notion that “Love is living in another person’s imagination”. Shot in a contemporary Paris of recent architecture and urban areas with modern high-rise, surrounded by windows, a sort of glass box when at nightfall Claire’s body reflection appears in windows, taking on a ghostly dimension.” (Marie-Pierre Richard)

“Satisfying and compulsively watchable. Almost Hitchcockian. Binoche is superb.” Screen Daily
