Five friends, all of them married, share a luxury apartment where they meet up with their mistresses. One morning, one of them finds a dead woman in the loft, handcuffed to the bed. Nobody knows what happened but suspicions start to wreck their friendship and endanger the secret. A huge hit in its home country, Belgian Erik Van Looy’s new film reels off a twisted intrigue through a series of flashbacks, plotted out like a diabolic puzzle, that go on to deteriorate the atmosphere until the movie’s characters and spectators get caught up in it. Sex, lies and tension in crescendo.
