his Golden Lion award-winning film last year), based on Eric Reinhardtnovel of the same name, the story of Love and forests revolves around Blanche. When she first ran into Greg, she thought she had found the one she was looking for. They quickly formed an attachment, but their relationship is marred by Greg’s quick temper. Blanche ignores her nagging doubts and distances herself from her family and her twin sister, convinced that she is reinventing herself. And little by little, she finds herself trapped by a possessive and dangerous man. A man she is too ashamed and too afraid to denounce. Because there are only two possible ways out of control: either the victim frees himself or he collapses…

Love and forests is produced by Edward Weil and Alice Girard on behalf of Rectangle Productions, in co-production with Les Films de Françoise, and was pre-purchased by Canal+. The full list of film partners will be revealed at a later date. Photography is entrusted to Laurent Tangy (nominated for the César 2019 in his specialty for Swimming sink [+see also:
