Jacques Audiard (A Prophet, Rust and Bone) ventures into new territory with a vibrant take on love and Paris, as four characters cross amorous paths in the modern city.

Set in the French capital's 13th arrondissement, where a predominantly East Asian community resides, Audiard's passionate romance charts the interwoven relationships between four twenty-somethings, played by Lucie Zhang, Makita Samba, Jehnny Beth and Noémie Merlant. As their lives intersect, their bustling district is the backdrop for a tough, tender, often euphoric city symphony.

With crackling black-and-white photography and stunning performances, this is a electric story of love, desire and everyday survival in a racially, culturally, sexually diverse contemporary city.
