When her marriage falls apart, Agnès Le Roux moves back to the South of France from Africa to live with her mother, Renée, owner of the Palais de La Mediterranée casino in Nice. There, Agnès falls in love with Maurice Agnelet, a lawyer and Reneé's business advisor, who is ten years her senior. Maurice continues to have relationships with other women. Agnès is madly in love with him. As a shareholder in the Palais de la Mediterannée casino, Agnès decides to sell what should have been her inheritance to go it alone. A fixed card game threatens the casino's financial stability. Someone is trying to intimidate her mother. Behind the scenes hangs the shadow of the mafia and Fratoni, the owner of a rival casino, who wants to take over the Palais de la Mediterannée.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: While by no means misfiring, Mr. Techine is definitely capable of finer orchestrations. – Nicolas Rapold, New York Times, May 14, 2015

Rotten: A mobster movie without whackings, a thriller without suspense and a courtroom drama without resolution, this turgid retelling of an unsolved missing-persons case functions mostly as a portrait of a young woman who loved too passionately. – Peter Debruge, Variety, May 11, 2015

Rotten: None of it is quite satisfying, especially when old-age makeup takes center stage. – Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, May 14, 2015

Fresh: The characters' intense desires are framed within a sedate, workaday context, so that even though the characters' passions drive the action, director Andre Techine lends the film an appealing illusion of calm. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, May 20, 2015
