'Le Refuge' is a moving exploration of the nature of family and blood ties from France's most prolific director - François Ozon who makes his return this month with 'By the Grace of God' (exclusively in cinemas and on Curzon Home Cinema).
Mousse (Isabelle Carré) and Louis (Melvil Poupaud) are young, beautiful and in love, but their drug addiction tears them apart.
When Mousse then learns that she is pregnant, she attempts to put her life back on track and flees to a house far from Paris where, several months later, she is joined by Louis’ brother Paul (French singer Louis-Ronan Choisy in his first screen appearance). United in their grief, Mousse and Paul begin to develop an unusual and deeply moving bond.
