SCREENING SPONSORED BY

Romaine is thirty years old. Justin, her fiancé, decides to take her to Québec's far northern territories for Christmas and to start a new life. But, over the Atlantic Ocean, upon learning that the plane is going to crash, Romaine decides that she doesn't want to die without telling Justin the truth she's always kept hidden from him. However, nothing unfolds exactly as planned. Previous episodes of Romaine's life have been interpreted until now by Agnès Obadia herself. For her second film about Romaine, the director decides to separate herself from her alter ego, and offers up Sandrine Kiberlain in the role of the gawky, clumsy girl.

Agnès Obadia, Director

Aside from some exceptions, your character is recurrent and follows you from film to film. How did Romaine come to be? It was wonderful to be able to offer this role to Sandrine Kiberlain. I was very curious to see how she would play the part, immerse herself in the role. I have been admiring Sandrine for a very long time, she has a natural elegance without trying to be so, comic without slapstick humor, and graceful whilst being clumsy.
