Chief inspector Richard Kemp, investigating a homicide that strangely reminds him of the murders committed by the serial killer Perce-Oreille, is propelled in May 1989 when the first murder occurred. In a frantic race Kemp tries to stop the programmed murders from happening but he keeps locking horns invariably with an ambitious, tenacious investigator… none other than himself 20 years ago. Hélène Batistelli, a key witness Kemp needs in his inquiries, becomes elusive.
Germinal Alvarez’s first feature film takes us into a captivating sci-fi thriller through its time travel as well as through the well-managed narrative balance between the genres.
The intensity of the film is magnified by the powerful, veracious acting by Jean-Hugues Anglade on top of his game and by the always-dazzling Melanie Thierry.
“The suspense is skillfully led by a handsome convincing couple. It gives us the chills while we stay under the spell of a plot cleverly put together” (Femina).
A breath-taking film!
