Just a Breath Away / Dans la brume (N/C 12+)

An earthquake hits Paris and almost immediately unleashes a thick toxic gas that kills everyone who breathes it in. An estranged couple manage to get above the gas (it tops off at about three stories high), but in doing so leave behind their daughter who has an illness that keeps her locked in a filtered containment unit. They need to change the unit’s battery every five hours or so, but as the gas slowly but surely rises, they also need to figure out a way to find more permanent safety for the whole family.

Cast Romain Duris, Olga Kurylenko, Fantine Harduin, Michel Robin

Tightly paced and refreshingly unpredictable, this auteur take on the disaster movie is a game changer. France Today
