Review
Long, covoluted murder mystery from highly respected French director Jacques Rivette. The excellent Sandrine Bonnaire plays Sylvie who, on discovering her younger brother trying to steal a gun, goes on to find that their late father's "accident" was in fact murder. Fearing that little bro is on a revenge mission, Sylvie decides that she herself will avenge his death. But when she mistakenly kills the wrong person, a whole new can of worms is opened......Absorbing and atmospheric.
