The story of Musique de chambre, written by the director himself, revolves around Richard and Catherine, who were in love and got married when they were 20 years old. Years later, Catherine finds herself a lover. Richard discovers the affair and is driven to despair. Catherine takes off, but she doesn’t go far, as she simply crosses the street and holes up in a bedroom in the hotel opposite – room number 212. From that vantage point, she now has a bird’s-eye view of her flat, her husband and her marriage. Catherine wonders what she’s been missing. Plenty of people in her life have their own ideas on the matter, and they fully intend to let her know…

Produced by Philippe Martin and David Thion for Les Films PelléasChambre 212 is being co-produced by France 2 Cinéma, Belgium’s Scope Pictures and Luxembourg’s Bidibul Productions. Having been pre-purchased by France 2, Canal+ and Ciné+, the feature is also being backed by Film Fund LuxembourgWallimage and the Cinémage, La Banque Postale Image and Palatine Étoile Soficas.
