Black and white film, made in 2014. Rather emotionally disengaged, like its characters. In French with English subtitles.

The title is in English, and the details above say there are English subtitles.
But there aren't any subtitles.

an ego-bound man and his doormat-ish wife each take a lover on the side. he feels entitled, his lover feels sullied when she discovers the wife has a lover too, he orders his wife to give up her lover, which she does even though she adores being adored by her lover. the documentary-making man and his support-crew wife separate. the end of the movie holds a couple of mild surprises. I found it all very non-engaging - maybe that is the point.
rotten tomatoes and Ebert's site give this movie high ratings. I don't often disagree, but.....
