The Story of My Wife


Captain Jakob Störr (Gijs Naber) bets an associate that he will marry the first woman who enters the café they're sitting in. Destined to converge with Störr’s life, in walks Lizzy (Léa Seydoux), and the rest, as they say, is written in the stars.

While new possibilities beyond the horizon call his name, the bewildered captain is in knots with suspicions of Lizzy’s infidelities and her clear-as-day attraction to the scoundrel Dedin (Louis Garrel) clouds his every move.

Based on Hungarian poet Milán Füst’s book of the same name.
