After mourning the loss of her friend Laura, Claire (Anais Demoustier) comes across Laura’s husband David (Romain Duris, Mood Indigo) dressed head-to-toe in his wife’s clothes. Unsure whether his new guise is the result of foul play, she threatens to reveal David to Laura’s family. But the more time she spends with him, the more Claire becomes seduced by his beautiful new incarnation. As the two become inseparable, Claire wonders whether she is falling for David’s alter ego, or perhaps a part of Laura’s resurrected soul.

Indebted to the visual styles of Pedro Almodóvar, Alfred Hitchcock and Brian De Palma, The New Girlfriend pays homage to classic cinema – from Rebecca to All About My Mother – while still being identified by Ozon, himself an undeniable auteur.
