The Dardenne Brothers direct Adèle Haenel, Jérémie Renier and Louka Minnella in this kitchen sink mystery from Belgium.
Works both as a low key amateur detective thriller and as a convincing week in the life of a modern GP. Adèle Haenel sells the pressures and rewards of working in her lower income community with a believable resilience. You share her quiet tenacity to get to the truth and alleviate some unwarranted guilt over an unclaimed young girl’s death. The crime aspects that unfold naturally are pretty compelling.
