Camille is driven to madness by the unexplained disappearance of her mother two years earlier. Recently brought home from a trip to Florence where she had a breakdown in a museum, Camille begins to investigate her mother’s case and finds clues that lead her to a secluded, run-down resort where she finds the woman herself and the mystery is put to rest. Or is it? Camille wakes up in a hospital later on and is told it was all in her imagination, but it doesn’t stop her searching. A beautifully photographed, heartfelt film that sometimes pushes the strains of heartstring-pulling and is a tad confusing, but overall satisfying and enjoyable.
