Michel Durand is a psychoanalyst. His days tick by in the muffled torpor of his office amid the moans of a math teacher complaining about her unruly pupils, the ranting of a premature ejaculator and the sado-masochistic tales of Olga Kubler, a perverted kleptomaniac. A pretty ordinary life for a therapist, if the strange and seductive Mrs. Kubler hadn’t had the unfortunate idea of getting strangled on her doctor’s couch, just when he’d fallen asleep.
As the snow falls over Paris, silent flakes whirl in the doctor’s dreams… The clock chimes. The session is over. Olga doesn’t move. This time, Michel Durand is wide awake.
What happened? Who killed the wife of Max Kubler, the crooked property developer? Why do Michel Durand’s forearms ache? Is it possible to murder someone in your sleep? (press kit)
