It is 1940. In Europe, the Second World War is raging. In Montreal, Pierre Sauvageau, 22, wants to join the army but he must take care of his twin sister Berthe, a paraplegic from birth. This closeness awakens Berthe’s sensuality who sets out to seduce her brother. Pierre rejects her advances, but when he falls in love with Marguerite, the girlfriend of his best buddy, he is haunted by the fantasy of his sister. He would like to get rid of it, but the fantasy of Berthe is very persistent.
Embrasse-moi comme tu m’aimes (Kiss Me Like a Lover) will open the 40th edition of the Montreal World Film Festival, the fourth time an André Forcier feature has screened in competition at the festival.
