Efira puts in a terrific performance in Antoine Barraud's taut relationship pic that veers into thriller territory.
NO LONGER PLAYING
Judith manages a busy double life spanning two countries. In France, she’s the glamorous wife of orchestra conductor Melvil, with whom she has two older boys. In Switzerland, she works as a translator, sharing a home with Abdel and their little girl. Gradually, this delicate facade built on lies, secrets, and constant to-ing and fro-ing starts to crack and Judith’s situation spirals out of control. Writer-director Antoine Barraud’s layered psychological drama explores themes of identity and the need for freedom, all through the eyes of a protagonist who continually defends the indefensible.

It’s a scenario that seems to be forever spinning out of control, and yet part of the attraction of Madeleine Collins is in seeing how far Barraud is willing take things.
