The French Cinémathèque at the Avalon Theatre Presents: The Unknown Girl

The Unknown Girl by the Dardenne brothers
2016 - Belgique/France - 113 min

The new film from acclaimed directors the Dardenne brothers (Two Days, One Night) is a searing saga of guilt and redemption. One evening after work hours, Jenny (Adèle Haenel), a young doctor, allows the door buzzer at the small clinic where she works to go unanswered. It’s only later that she learns that the person ringing was an unidentified African woman found dead shortly after by the side of a road. Consumed by the thought that she was to blame, Jenny embarks on an obsessive crusade to discover who the anonymous woman was and to see to it that she is not forgotten.

Shot through with low-key suspense and the heart-stopping realism that has become the directors’ trademark, The Unkown Girl is both a gripping mystery and a profoundly human moral tale.

In French with English subtitles.
