Directed by: FRÉDÉRIC MERMOUD
Starring: Nathalie Baye, Emmanuelle Devos, Diane Rouxel, David Clavel
The stunning Swiss Alps form the setting for this sleek psychological thriller which has been skillfully adapted from the novel by Tatiana de Rosnay and stars luminous leading ladies Emmanuelle Devos (Just a Sigh, AF FFF14) and Nathalie Baye (Laurence Anyways, AF FFF13).

After her young son is killed in a hit and run, Diane (Devos) resolves to seek vengeance. Armed with the information that a mocha-coloured Mercedes was responsible, Diane ventures from her Swiss home of Lausanne, across Lake Geneva to the French spa town of Évian-les-Bains, where she encounters the potentially guilty couple Marlène (Baye) and Michel (Clavel). Grief and her uncompromising desire for revenge drive Diane to assume an alias and proceed to connivingly integrate herself into the fabric of the couple’s lives, her intentions growing ever darker as she becomes more confident of her convictions.

Subtle and enthralling, Devos is utterly transfixing as the majestic mountains hang ominously over her every move. When suspicions heighten, the tension mounts, leaving little for the viewer to do but hold their breath in anticipation as Diane edges ever closer to the truth.
