Geneva 2018. On a train, Isabelle spots a young woman entirely clad in Islamic attire. Her heart skips a beat: it's Anaïs, her granddaughter. Without saying a word to Anaïs, Isabelle calls Léa, Anaïs' mother, who lives in Montreal. Léa immediately flies to Switzerland. She wants to understand why her daughter has converted to Islam. But Isabelle believes that if Anaïs secretly became a Muslim, there must be a reason. A reason Isabelle and Léa need to discover. As Isabelle and Léa realize how fanatic Anaïs has grown, Léa also finds out that Isabelle, her mother, was involved in a terrible attack on a Swissair flight, in 1970, which killed 47 people flying from Zurich to Tel Aviv. Among the victims, was Léa's own father. What if both stories were connected?Written by
Marthe Keller plays here a former terrorist in the seventies, when she planned and executed massive killings. Marthe Keller already played a extreme left winged terrorist for the Palestinians cause in John Frankenheimer's Black Sunday. See more »
The title reveals itself in parts in the opening, so that it first reads "Vol" ("Flight" or "Theft"), then "Voile" ("Veil") and finally the full title "Dévoilées" ("Unveiled"). See more »
I won't repeat the topic already told just above. I am ot a parrot. But that'sjust a flawless film made or TV with great actresses where Marthe Keller is absolutely awesome as the former terrorist grand ma !!!! This is also a story of people being manipulated, lied from; by parents, by the surrounding world, politicians as well as the terrorist leaders. A TV movie that makes you think about modern society. You can think about another French film called LES COWBOYS, released in 2015.
