Added to my films
The aging photographer, Stéphane (Olivier Gourmet), still in mourning, is obsessed with taking life-sized daguerreotypes. This process, commonly used in the early years of the medium, needs a long exposure, requiring the subjects to remain motionless for extended periods of time. Nineteenth-century superstition also held that the process gave eternal afterlife to the people captured on film. Stéphane's new employee, Jean (Tahar Rahim), gets caught up in an increasingly bizarre web involving his boss' alluring daughter, Marie (Constance Rousseau), who often poses for her father in scenarios that begin to disturb Jean. He is soon dealing with Marie's desire to escape this prison.
