ORIGIN OF EVIL, THE
[L'ORIGINE DU MAL]
Laure Calamy (CALL MY AGENT!) gives a wickedly brilliant performance as Stéphane, a fish factory worker who's waiting for her lover (Suzanne Clément) to complete her jail sentence. Having struggled all her life, Stéphane decides that now is the time to reach out to Serge (Jacques Weber), the wealthy married man who fathered her out of wedlock. The now aging and ill man proves to be receptive to the adult daughter he never knew, but Stéphane discovers the family around him to be a vipers' nest, angling for the old man's inheritance and suspicious of this new interloper. Written and directed by Sébastien Marnier, this twisty thriller harkens back to the work of Agatha Christie and Patricia Highsmith, with a stylish air of intrigue and sensual visuals that bear comparison to screen masters Claude Chabrol and Pedro Almodóvar. Official Selection, 2022 Venice, Toronto and London film festivals. DIR/SCR Sébastien Marnier; PROD Caroline Bonmarchand. France/Canada, 2022, color, 125 min. In French with English subtitles. NOT RATED
