The Night of the 12th
(La nuit du 12)
Inspired by a true case from Pauline Guéna's book: a young woman is murdered in her quiet mountain village. But what starts out as an investigation into the victim's life and a shocking crime soon turns into a haunting obsession for newly promoted Detective Yohan Vivés and his team as the killer continues to evade them...
From acclaimed French director Dominik Moll (Only the Animals) this is a raw, powerful police drama, layered with social topics addressing some fundamental issues around human behaviour, endemic misogyny and male violence towards women, which is elevated by stellar performances from the award-winning cast.
