Storyline

Consumed with grief and a silent rage over the loss of her teenage son who was killed in a hit-and-run, Diane, the devastated mother, takes the ferry across Lake Geneva to the spa town of Évian, in a desperate pursuit of the truth. Once there, the tragic mother armed with a well-concealed handgun and a graphic, yet incomplete description of the offending car will soon suspect that Marlène, the cryptic middle-aged salon owner, and her boyfriend, Michel, are somehow involved in the irremediable act. However, the path towards justice can be treacherous and serpentine, furthermore, will it make any difference finding the culprit behind the wheel? Written by Nick Riganas

User Reviews

More drama than a thriller...
17 August 2016 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

As it has already been told above, the scheme here is very close to another movie released last year at the nearly same time: LA VOLANTE, also starring Nathalie Baye, where she played the character, at least an equivalent of Emmanuelle Devos' one here. But the character she offered last year was a victim, whose the son was killed by a hit and run driver and a desperate mother who became herself a murderer, a cold blooded killer. Unlike here where Emmanuelle Devos remains human; and that makes it a drama. Yes this movie I am talking about today remains a drama more than a crime film. I preferred LA VOLANTE. But both actresses, Nathalie Baye and Emmanuelle Devos are convincing enough to keep you entertained.But nothing special besides this.
