Three Days and a Life

Trois jours une vie (N/C 15+)

Dir Nicolas Boukhrief

The murderer always returns to the scene of the crime, even if 15 years later. This is the case in a captivating rural thriller based on the best-selling novel by master crime writer Pierre Lemaître. It is Christmas 1999 in a small village in the Ardennes, a seemingly safe provincial world, where everyone knows one another and follows the other’s movements. It is a cotton-wool-wrapped microcosm which is one day rocked by the inexplicable disappearance of a four-year-old boy. And that’s not all…
