I can't take any more, I can't stand it, it's physical. When I see her.......I want to strangle her... and you don' t do that sort of thing do you? ...well...you can do it, but you're not supposed to.... Is that not wrong? Strangling her..... That's what I thought, its not right ....
Sofia and Paul have been living together for four months. Four months that have been heaven for her and hell for him, Paul wants to end the relationship today, he can’t wait any longer, he can’t take any more. A sudden and urgent break up that he dare not and does not know how to face. To do it he needs Martin, his best friend, whom he puts in charge of ending his relationship. Martin refuses at first, but ends up giving in to the plan. He will go to live with them and, by his presence in the flat, destabilize the couple’s relationship. This is the plan: one week, one week and no more. There are few more unbearable situations than a guest non grata invading our space, our time, not knowing when he is going to leave.
A lack of commitment and sincerity are the ingredients of this comedy that laughs at the art of complicating our lives with lies. Clément Michel criticises the immaturity of people in their thirties. The immaturity of the characters creates situations where, the bigger the lie and the worse the characters become, the more entertaining it is for the audience. And the lies are frequent and huge… So great that even they can’t separate them from the truth.
