Scene of the Crime

April 27 - May 3
André Téchiné, 1986, France, 90m, DCP
This restrained psychological thriller traces the complex ripple effects of a chance run-in between a 14-year-old youth and an escaped criminal in the woods in rural France. Anchoring the film is a spectacularly controlled Catherine Deneuve, who plays the boy’s mother and lives in turn with her own maman (Danielle Darrieux). As her life takes a chaotic turn, Deneuve’s dark past is gradually—and gracefully—unveiled. In French with English subtitles
