Synopsis

DIRECTOR: Ursula Meier

WITH: Fanny Ardant, Kacey Mottet-Klein, JeanPhilippe Ecoffey, St├ęphanie Blanchoud

Fanny Ardant gives a charismatic and nuanced performance as a teacher of creative writing whose life changes when one of her pupils murders his parents. As the recipient of a diary in which the young killer had outlined his plans, she finds herself increasingly targeted by the police. Can her lessons in literature really have helped to encourage a criminal mindset? This subtle exploration of the strange, uneasy relationship between student and teacher is constantly intriguing and unsettling.
