Léa Seydoux shines with this hypnotic role performance in Golden Bear-awarded auteur Ildikó Enyedi’s grand film adaptation of Milán Füst’s stormy infidelity epic.

Sea captain Jacob Störr (Gijs Naber) makes a bet that he will marry the first woman that steps in through the door – in steps Lizzy (Léa Seydoux) and in a flash their fate is sealed. It's love-hate at first sight and the two betrothed soon drag each other on a destructive sail of mistrust and infidelity between the harbor cities of Europe. Ildikó Enyedi transforms the gallant seafarer into a tragic romantic in an elegant and exquisitely shot costume drama about salty love under the stormy era of Europe in the 1930s.
