Vicky, a lonely girl, has an unusually keen sense of smell. She can recognise all smells and collects them in jars. She has a very close bond with her mother who works as a swimming instructor. The return of her aunt Julia brings unrest into the family. Vicky begins to preserve her aunt's smell and subsequently discovers the secrets of her village, her family and her existence. Director Léa Mysius succeeds in creating a fascinating story with many undertones. THE FIVE DEVILS is simultaneously a family drama, a lesbian love story and even a thriller with fantastic allusions. Anything can happen in this atmosphere.

Age rating: from 16 years
