The doctor introduces him to a young couple in an open marriage, and Manu begins an affair with the husband. When Manu becomes ill, all the characters search for meaning while contemplating what awaits them. With Michel Blanc, Emmanuelle Beart, and Julie Depardieu. Techiné’s Strayed screened at the Wexner Center in 2004. (112 mins., 35mm)
