FIVE DEVILS, THE
[LES CINQ DIABLES]
Growing up in a picturesque Alpine valley, young Vicky (Sally Dramé) senses that the marriage between her swim instructor mother Joanne (Adèle Exarchopoulos) and firefighter father Jimmy (Moustapha Mbengue) may be on the rocks. She is also becoming aware of her supernatural sense of smell, which allows her a kind of second sight. When her long-lost aunt Julia (Swala Emati) arrives unannounced, the tension between her parents ratchets up even higher. A mysterious potion Julia gifts to Vicky takes her on a perilous journey into the past, where she uncovers long-held secrets about her parents' tangled love lives. The second directorial feature from Léa Mysius (AVA), a screenwriter on films for Jacques Audiard, Claire Denis and Arnaud Desplechin, is a twisty, supernatural drama that examines small-town racism, homophobia and the ways in which we manage to contain — for a time — memories of the past. "[A] multiracial, bisexual, small-town love triangle meets the mind of M. Night Shyamalan." – The Hollywood Reporter. Official Selection, 2022 AFI FEST, Cannes and Fantastic Fest film festivals. DIR/SCR Léa Mysius; SCR Paul Guilhaume; PROD Jean-Louis Livi, Fanny Yvonnet. France, 2022, color, 95 min. In French with English subtitles. NOT RATED
