Can love vanish without a trace?

Named one of People Magazine's Most Beautiful People, Charlotte Rampling (The Night Porter, The Verdict) gives one of her most acclaimed performancesin Francois Ozon's (Criminal Lovers, Water Drops on Burning Rocks) mesmerizing tale of loss and grief, Under the Sand.

For many years, Marie (Rampling) and Jean (Bruno Cremer) have happily spent their vacations together at their country house.One day at the beach, Marie naps in the sand while Jean goes for a swim.When she awakens, he is gone.Did he drown?Did he run off?Distraught, Marie notifies the authorities but after an extensive search, no body is found.

Tenaciously and disquietingly, Marie keeps the memory of her husband alive, often speaking of him as if he never disappeared.She strikes up a tentative relationship with Vincent (Jacques Nolot), but is unable to make any real commitment.Ultimately she must grapple with her life alone while coping with her erotic stirrings and fantasy life.
