Before the winter chill
The surgeon Paul lives a perfect life together with his wife who is always supportive and would never question him. Happily married since they were teenagers, they live a seemingly perfect upper-class life. But the illusion falls apart when the mysterious Lou enters their lives. Paul is drawn into a dangerous love affair that tears him between security and desire. Sofia Olsson writes in Kulturnyheterna: “Both Scott Thomas and Auteuil excel in the art of conveying subtle feelings of boredom and anxiety. You can watch their faces for a long long time. They play sparse and elegantly, and radiates luxury like some kind of European actor-Rolls Royce".
