La dame de trèfle

Jérôme Bonnell France, 2009

findfilm's rating of the film The Queen of Clubs

A modern day murder mystery set in small-town rural France where an orphaned brother and sister live and party. It's a parable of where petty crime can lead and up until the final scene it seems entirely plausible. Very good acting and directing is ultimately let down by a climax that seems too unlikely but by then the ending was indeterminable anyway. Not a classic French film but still an entertaining watch.
