Joseph (Matthew Luret) and Celice (Daniella Alma) met each other on a science camp in the 1960s when they were both aspiring scientists, and they studied an as-of-yet undiscovered species of insects - and fell in love over it. Now it's 1999, they (now played by Linus Roache and Elizabeth Marvel) have since married, have had a daughter, Syl (Emilotte Persson), who has since grown up and grown estranged from their parents, and their love has over the years lost all their romance. And then they read that the area they have studied that rare insect species back when has been repurposed as building grounds and thus this particular species will lose its natural habitat and probably go extinct. So to rekindle what they've once had, they travel back to that special place - but often the best intentions lead to the worst outcomes ...


A rather masterfully constructed drama that tells its story simultanously on three independent narrative levels - Joseph and Celine young and in love, Joseph and Celine trying to recapture the romance in their lives, daughter Syl trying (and failing) to reconnect with her parents - that are yet so closely interconnected that the three threads feel like one whole. Add to that a directorial effort that's subtle and atmospheric at the same time and avoids all kitsch, and very grounded, sometimes even underplayed performances, and you've got a very touching film - that feels real enough to maybe make one shed a few tears even.
