Winner of six Cesar Awards, including Best Film and Best Director (Dominik Moll), this dark, bleak crime drama about the unsolved murder of a young French woman may just be the best of its kind in a good long while. Reminiscent of American fare like ‘Mystic River’ and ‘Gone Baby Gone’, it’s a creepy slow burn, punctuated with brilliant bits showing how violence (and the job of investigating it) affects those doing the digging. It’s a slice of life (ripped from the actual headlines) that will haunt you long after.

4.5/5 stars
