French screenwriter and director Cédric Anger's third feature film which he wrote, is inspired by real events which took place in l'Oise, Picardie in France in the late 1970 and an adaptation of a novel from 2001 by a French journalist and author named Yvan Stefanovitch and a French journalist named Martine Laroche-Joubert. It premiered in France, was shot on locations in France and is a French production which was produced by producers Alain Attal and Anne Rapczyk. It tells the story about a police officer.
Distinctly and subtly directed by French filmmaker Cédric Anger, this quietly paced and somewhat fictional tale which is narrated mostly from the protagonist's point of view, draws a psychologically reflective portrayal of a twenty-two-year-old son whom whilst in the midst of a murder investigation befriends a person named Sophie. While notable for its atmospheric milieu depictions and reverent cinematography by cinematographer Thomas Hardmeier, this character- driven story about French police history which was made more than a century after a French thinker with the birth name Marie Gouze wrote: "Women, wake up; the tocsin of reason sounds throughout the universe, recognize your rights." a social club called Amis de la Verité or Society of the Friends of Truth was introduced in France, legal equality was ascribed to the Jewish people of France, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland passed the Roman Catholic Relief Act 1829, a French journalist named Julie Victoire Daubiè (1824-1874) graduated from a French University and women were permitted to obtain medical degrees, an English writer named Mary Corinna Putnam Jacobi (1842-1906) was admitted as a student in the Faculty of Medicine department at the Sorbonne (1150-1970) and a Scottish advocate for women's education named Mary Maclean Crudelius (1839-1877) and a Commander of the Order of the British Empire named Dame Sarah Elizabeth Siddons Mair (1846-1941) founded Edinburgh Association for the Education of Women (1867-1892), depicts a cinematically literary study of character.
Made more than a century after an English theorist with the initials J.S.M. wrote: "I find it presumption in anyone to pretend to decide what women are or are not, can or cannot be, by natural constitution." an English teacher named Sarah Emily Davis (1830- 1921) became Mistress of Girton College, Cambridge University in England, a French physician named Madeleine Près (1839-1925) attained a doctorate in medicine, an English doctor of medicine named Elizabeth Garrett Anderson (1836- 1917) opened her own practice in London, England, achieved a medical degree at the University of Paris and was elected as Mayor in England, a German author from Königsberg, Prussia named Henriette Arendt (1874-1922) became a police officer, a civil law enforcement agency which was founded in the early 19th century by a French police officer named Eugène François Vidocq (1775-1857) changed its name to National Police, an autonomous public institution in France called University Paris VIII was founded, women were allowed admittance at a public institution of higher education and research in the commune of Palaiseau in Paris, France called École Polytechnique, a twenty-five-year-old French Commandant named Caroline Aigle (1974-2007) became a fighter pilot in the French Air Force and an American singer with the surname Merchant sang her lyrics: "Doctors have come from distant cities just to see me - - stand over my bed ... what they're " contains a great and timely score by composer Grégoire Hetzel.
This momentarily humane and grave retelling which is set in France in the late 20th century and where a French man of the law named Alain Lamare is completely preoccupied with gaining a promotion and daughters are disappearing one by one, is impelled and reinforced by its cogent narrative structure, subtle character development, rhythmic continuity, scenes with Sophie, the reverent acting performance by French actor, screenwriter and director Guillaume Canet and the efficiently understated acting performance by French actress Ana Girardot. A darkly concentrated narrative feature.
