Your past always catches up with you.

From Jacques Audiard, the acclaimed filmmaker of Read My Lips, comes this haunting new thriller that fuses two unlikely worlds to create a stunning portrait of a young gangster.

Romain Duris (L'Auberge Espangole), in a standout performance, plays Tom, a 28 year-old who seems destined to follow in his father's footsteps as a Parisian property shark working in a sleazy and sometimes brutal world. However, a chance encounter with his late mother's music agent leads him to believe that he can become, like his mother, a concert pianist. In earnest, he starts preparing for the audition with the help of a beautiful, young virtuoso pianist who has just arrived from China. She doesn't speak a word of French; music is their only exchange. But pressures from the ugly world of his day job become more than he can handle...
