Aroview: A claustrophobic psychological thriller dealing with a trio of young friends who naively conspire to commit a home invasion, that becomes a study of apathy and mediocrity turned murderous.

Marie Gillain dreams of exceeding all her middle-class boundaries, but is stuck in a job as a high-class hostess, while her aimless boyfriend lives off her earnings. One night she lures a wealthy client back to his house, where the others wait to rob him of his supposed ‘riches’. When these are not forthcoming, things get rapidly ugly, dir. Tavernier revealing his ever-satisfying touch for psychological twists and turns.
