“A Patricia Highsmith-like thriller.” The Hollywood Reporter

Synopsis

Equipped with a few items of clothing, a little bit of money, and a weapon, Diane Kramer (Emmanuelle Devos) leaves for Evian. She has a sole obsession: to find the driver of the mocha-coloured Mercedes who ran over her son and turned her life upside down. But the path of truth has more bends than it appears. Diane discovers that she must confront another woman (Nathalie Baye, also in It’s Only the End of the World) both endearing and mysterious.

Swiss filmmaker Frédéric Mermoud sets this psychological drama around the picturesque but treacherous Lake Geneva, an area between two countries and two cities. The Lake becomes an arena like in a western, calm in appearance but with unpredictable swirls that bring out anxiety.

Cinema veterans Baye and Devos star opposite each other for the first time: an impressive vis-à-vis full of suspense reminiscent of the films of Chabrol and Hitchcock.
