Menno Meyjes (The Color Purple) brings us a film based upon the New York Times, Best Selling Novel by Herman Koch. Serge knows something, otherwise he would not have made reservations in this fancy restaurant. Babette knows something too, otherwise she wouldn't be crying. Hopefully they won't tell Claire, because she doesn't know anything. And Paul...Paul knows everything. They all avoid the subject they actually should be talking about, their children. They did something terrible that can ruin their future. But who knows that?
