The Night of the 12th

March 2, 10:00 AM

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 10:00 AM, repeating until March 3, 2024

The Night of the 12th is not a typical Cinema Explorations film. We’ve rarely forayed into crime dramas, if at all, but this film (which won seven César Awards, including Best Film and Best Director) justified being an exception. The Night of the 12th is a "deft and satisfying police procedural" based on “Pauline Guéna’s immersive account of a year spent with the Criminal Investigation Department of Versailles” (Screen Daily). "Critic’s Pick! A refreshingly grounded picture of crime-fighting" (The New York Times). Sometimes cases defy explanation and evade solution. Captain Yohan Vivès faces such an elusive mystery when he investigates the gruesome murder of Clara in the French town of Grenoble. The attack was premeditated and its violence suggests revenge. All the evidence points towards a scorned ex-lover, but which one? Vivès’ team methodically digs through the details of Clara’s life, uncovering her secrets while striving to weed out the killer.

In English, and in French with English subtitles.

(Not Rated, 115 min., 2022)

Free admission, made possible by the Colby Center for the Arts and Humanities.

Part of Cinema Explorations, a wintertime community-curated film series.
