Passion simple is an adaptation of the eponymous novel by Annie Ernaux, published in 1992 and going on to sell 370,000 copies in France, before being translated into 18 languages. The book continues to be republished by Gallimard to this day. The plot focuses on a man and a woman who are brought together by chance for several months. The film follows the evolution of their love, from the beginning to end. No precise explanation is given about the origin of the meeting. He is younger than she is, married, Russian, officially a diplomat stationed in Paris. She is a beautiful teacher and researcher, with her feet firmly on the ground, but she’s about to delude herself to the max... One day he disappears, fleeing back to his own country without warning. She tries to forget about him, but little by little she forgets who she is. She feels the air he breathes in Moscow and prays in churches in Florence. She soon finds herself feeling unfamiliar in her own world. Desire pervades everything...

Produced by David Thion and Philippe Martin for Les Films Pelléas, Passion simple was co-produced by Jacques-Henri Bronckart and Gwen Libert for the Belgian company Versus Production. Pre-purchased by Ciné + and Proximus, the feature film also received support from the Ile-de-France region, Auvergne Rhône-Alpes Cinema, Eurimages, Sofica La Banque Postale Image, Cinécap and Inver Invest (the Belgian tax shelter). The shoot lasted seven weeks, taking place from 19 January to 5 March in Paris and the surrounding region, as well as in Lyon, Florence and Moscow, with Pascale Granel (The Wild Boys [+leggi anche:
