1 Day Details


The crumbling relationships within a suburban Geneva family are detailed from three distinctly unique perspectives in Swiss director Jacob Berger's insightful family drama. As the rain falls heavy outside his family's modest Meyrin apartment, radio newsman Serge (Bruno Todeschini) rises from bed and prepares for another day at work. After waking his wife Pietra (Natacha Regnier) and his son Vlad (Louis Dussol), Serge gets behind the wheel and makes a quick stop by the apartment of his ravishing mistress Mathilde (Noemie Kocher). Distracted by the downpour on his way to work, the womanizing father runs into something with his car yet keeps driving. Later at work, Serge finds his mind continually drifting back to the incident and goes back to find out if anyone was injured. When nothing appears amiss, Serge and Mathilda go back to the married man's apartment for an invigorating bout of afternoon sex. Eventually, the action shifts to Pietra's perspective as she takes the bus to the museum where she works. Despite the fact that a rabid dog is loose in the building, Pietra boldly enters in a desperate bid to locate her missing cell phone. When Pietra returns home unexpectedly in the middle of the afternoon, the discovery she makes send her into a state of minor shock. Meanwhile, as young Vlad stakes out the nearby apartment building where a pretty classmate lives, he is surprised to see his father turn up on the scene. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
