An unsettling yet hypnotic portrait of love at its most toxic, Perfect Love chronicles the explosive, protracted demise of a fling. Twice-divorced optician Frédérique (Isabelle Renauld) falls for the much younger Christophe (Francis Renaud), but loses her patience with his irrepressible insecurity and possessiveness. But as time goes on, she finds herself increasingly attached to their hideously codependent relationship precisely because of and not despite its abundant toxicity. Intelligently and fearlessly depicting the dark side of romantic connection, Perfect Love is Breillat at her most incisive.
