|Plot||Avril is a novice in a convent of "Baptistine" sisters, a monastic order which was officially dissolved by the end of the nineteenth century but that is kept alive by Mère Marie Joseph, the sadistic superior. The rule she imposes on the nuns is particularly strict but this is all Avril has ever known since she was born, for she was an abandoned child raised by the nuns with a view to making one of them. While Avril is on retreat, locked in for a fortnight in a chapel prior to taking her vows, Soeur Bernadette, a sympathetic sister, discloses a secret to her: she has a twin brother and she encourages her to go looking for him...... search for Avril on IMDb|

Avril (Sophie Quinton) never knew her parents; rather than keep her, her folks left her on the doorstep of a convent, where she was raised by the nuns, led by Sister Bernadette (Miou-Miou). Avril has long intended to join the only family she's ever known at the convent, but Sister Bernadette gently but firmly suggests she should take the opportunity to see the larger world before she turns her life over to the Lord. The suggestion has been nagging at Avril for some time, and when she and her fellow novices are supposed to spend a weekend in silent meditation at the chapel, she takes the opportunity to sneak away for a few days. Avril's attempts to learn something about her parents has led her to discover she has a twin brother, and she decides it's time she met him. Avril hitches a ride to visit her brother David (Clement Sibony), catching a lift with Pierre (Nicolas Duvauchelle) and arriving in time to discover he's about to leave for a weekend getaway. David invites Avril along, but to her surprise, he also brings along Jim (Richaud Valls), his significant other; Pierre ends up tagging along, and as Avril gets to know her brother and his boyfriend, she also notices that Pierre seems to have taken a keen interest in her. Avril was the first feature film from writer and director Gerald Hustache-Mathieu.|
