In a café in Paris, two friends—one single, the other in an « open » relationship — catch up on their lives and loves. In this animated short where the real story plays out in what’s not said, French cartoonist Aude Picault delivers a delightful ode to the sometimes-complex amorous relationships of modern times. She also takes an affectionate but penetrating look at friendship between women—and the jealousy, envy or judgment that can lurk behind the prettiest speeches.
