Jacques, about 30,drives along a precipitous road at top speed. He's drunk. At that moment in a provincial hospital Lou his wife brings their child into the world. The birth goes badly and once the child appears, Lou sleeps on, while Jacques tries to forget their existence in the arms of a girl.
ERRANCE is the story of three people in flight, a tragedy told over three periods, a wild race towards a happiness which is endlessly slipping away. Not for their lack in believing in it. for promising it as much as they dream of it. But between dream and nightmare, Jacques and Lou tear each other apart. They destroy each other as if searching for a truth at the root of their lives. The lies Jacques amasses while believing what he says, and the lies Lou tells herself.
Under the solitary gaze of their child.
The second feature from Odoul (whose beautiful and audacious debut LE SOUFFLE astounded critics and audiences worldwide) ERRANCE isa dark and harrowing love story, an overwhelming powerful tale of doomed passion and harsh fate.
Featuring ouside performaces from its leads Laetitia Casta and Benoît Magimel and shot with a breathtaking assurance, the film establishes Odoul's position at the very forefront if visionary French cinema.
