Oh Mercy!


Roubaix police chief Daoud and newcomer Louis grapple with a peculiar case of murder, deceit, and blame, all at the hands of their two primary suspects, Claude and Marie. At first, confessions appear far off and interrogations slowly become a game of finger-pointing. However, when a false identification is made, Daoud and Louis must take a deep dive into the minds of these two young women not only to discover their motives, but to save lives. Arnaud Desplechin’s latest film detours from romance and delivers an unfiltered view of reality. Witnesses become suspects and culprits become victims in this raw crime drama. Introduction by Iana Dontcheva (VAFF)
