Persona Non Grata / Persona non grata (N/C 18+)
Roschdy Zem directs and stars in this dark thriller set in the south of France, a place riddled with economic corruption and blackmail. After 15 years of loyal service, José (Nicolas Duvauchelle) and Maxime (Raphaël Personnaz) – good friends and associates in the same company – can no longer stand their boss, Eddy (Frédéric Pierrot). Sick of being manipulated, cheated and humiliated, they decide to take the ultimate step and hire a hitman to eliminate the cause of their misery. But Eddy’s death brings them no peace, especially when the killer resurfaces, hell-bent on claiming his share of the spoils… A razor-wire tense crime thriller powered by a truly charismatic trio of actors.
