As he returns to Arte, at 8:55 p.m., First recommend it to you. Especially if you like this duo of actresses. Here is our review: “Director of the moving Complices, Frédéric Mermoud does it again with an intimate thriller that takes the form of an existential quest for the heroine. to be at the origin of a drama of which his son was the victim. His obsessive behavior, close to morbidity, which Mermoud stages with the required ambiguity, constitutes all the interest of a film that we would have liked more tense: by multiplying the scenes of shadowing and watching, the Swiss filmmaker dilutes the tension a little. The face to face between Devos and Nathalie Baye is him, where we expect him, that is to say on the register of pure emotion.”
