2014, Music Box Films, 95 min, Belgium, Dir: Fabrice Du Welz

Martha Beck and Raymond Fernandez, the notorious “lonely hearts killers” of the late 1940s, inspired this torrid thriller. A single mother (Lola Dueñas) connects with a petty crook (Laurent Lucas) on a dating site, and their growing passion eventually spirals into bloodshed. “Two rock-solid performances, gritty cinematography and an impressive mise-en-scene make for a great movie.” - Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter. In French with English subtitles.
