NIGHT OF THE 12TH, THE
[LA NUIT DU 12]
"There is something seriously amiss in the relationship between men and women." Walking home late at night in her picturesque Grenoble town, Clara Royer (Lula Cotton-Frapier), a free-spirited young woman, is accosted and set aflame by a dark-clad attacker. Obsessive police detectives (Bastien Bouillon, Bouli Lanners and Mouna Soualem) work the case over the next several years, uncovering a complex web of Clara's past lovers. Many of them fit the profile as suspects and some have secrets to keep, but none can be implicated in her murder. Based on a real-life unsolved case, the latest film from writer/director Dominik Moll and screenwriter Gilles Marchand (WITH A FRIEND LIKE HARRY…) is a gripping police procedural and a searing indictment of a society plagued by callousness and violence against women. Official Selection, 2022 Cannes Film Festival. DIR/SCR Dominik Moll; SCR Gilles Marchand, from the book by Pauline Guéna; PROD Caroline Benjo, Barbara Letellier, Carole Scotta. France/Belgium, 2022, color, 114 min. In French with English subtitles. NOT RATED
