A chateau in the Dordogne, an accidental meeting between two very different women who find they have shared the same lover. Fabrice, a photographer, is the man they have loved, and he has in turn loved them, in his own way. Through Fabrice's novel we relive his two great love affairs, but his is not the only story: we also get very different versions from each of the women as we learn that Fabrice has been found deep beneath the chateau, babbling and catatonic in an 'oubliette', a tiny prison in the ground where people are locked up and forgotten. Eyebabies is an enigmatic and colourful existential drama. It is an intriguing portrayal of love and relationships that moves with the strength of its characterisations and dialogue.
