Description


The legendary Dardenne brothers return with another searing drama about the profound moral challenges of everyday life is this gripping tale of a young doctor who becomes obsessed with exploring the death of a woman who died outside her clinic.

The new film from the acclaimed directors Dardenne brothers (Two Days, One Night) is a searing saga of guilt and redemption. One evening after work hours, Jenny (Adèle Haenel), a young doctor, allows the door buzzer at the small clinic where she works to go unanswered. It’s only later that she learns that the person ringing was an unidentified African woman found dead shortly after by the side of a road. Consumed by the thought that she is to blame, Jenny embarks on an obsessive crusade to discover who the anonymous woman was and to see to it that she is not forgotten. Shot through with low-key suspense and the heart-stopping realism that has become the directors’ trademark, Unknown Girl is both a gripping mystery and a profoundly human moral tale. (Belgium/France, 2016, 113 min., NR, French with English subtitles | Dir. Jean-Pierre Dardenne & Luc Dardenne)
