Jean, a former professional rugby player, and Sara, a radio personality, have been happily together for a decade.

A visceral feeling awakens inside of Sara that is bound to push her relationships with both men to the brink.
Both Sides of the Blade reunites Claire Denis with stars Juliette Binoche, Vincent Lindon, and Grégoire Colin. The film is a slow-burning drama that possesses immense empathy for characters who experience the intensity of love like a blade cut to the heart.
