When his father dies, Guillaume, a policeman who is having an excellent time in his career, decides to offer the administration of the family bowling alley to his half-brother Arnaud, who lives adrift and has a bad relationship with the family. Arnaud takes over the business, but his ignorance and general ill treatment of people lead him into conflicts with several people, including the group of wild animal hunters of which his father was a part. Meanwhile, Guillaume is assigned to investigate a series of bloody murders of women. In Patricia Mazuy’s new film, a dark and shocking thriller, male aggressiveness is expressed in multiple ways: from relatively small daily acts to its maximum expression, crime. The gloomy settings and a dry treatment of violence give shape to a tense universe, where horror seems the only possible path.
Patricia Mazuy was born in France in 1960. She is a writer-director. After her first shorts, she worked as an editor for Agnès Varda in Vagabond (1989). There she met Sandrine Bonnaire, who would become the star of Thick Skinned (1989), her first feature. She wrote and directed some of her works alongside her husband, actor Simon Reggiani.
