French Film Festival: The Origin of Evil (15)

Saturday 11th November 2023 - Wednesday 15th November 2023

Tickets £5 full price / £4 concessions.

Dir. Sébastien Marnier, France, 2022, 125 mins, subtitled. Cast. Laure Calamy, Doria Tillier, Dominique Blanc, Jacques Weber.

With more than a nod in the director of such masters as Patricia Highsmith and Claude Chabrol, director Sébastien Marnier sets up camp in a luxurious seaside villa where a young woman finds herself in the company of her strange family: an unknown wealthy father, Serge, his extravagant wife, Louise his scheming daughter George, his rebellious granddaughter Jeanne and their creepy housekeeper Agnès. Laure Calamy stars as the calculating Stéphane, a worker at a fish factory who shows up on the doorstep claiming to be the long-lost daughter of the patriarch. Cue twists and turns in abundance.

The Origin of Evil’s wicked ways hit home with all the more jouissance for being deceptively anchored in the real - Sight& Sound
