Storyline

It's been six months since Rachel Siprien disappeared. At the request of Rachel's mother, private detective François takes over the investigation. The young woman, with a complex and multi-faceted personality, is part of a strange network made up of her best friend, her ex-boyfriend, her stepfather and everyone who knows her well or even slightly. François begins to frequent these various friends and acquaintances, and penetrates Rachel's daytime and nocturnal habitat. He spies, asks disturbing questions, and intentionally fills in the blanks left by those he questions. Written by Polly_Kat

22 April 2002 | by numero6See all my reviews

The atmosphere of the movie is amazing, the colors and the omnipresent music both stress the gloom and cynicism of the depicted world.

Disillusionment, Lust, Strangeness, succesfully put together in an unusual private investigation.
