DIRECTOR: ALAIN TANNER

CAST: CLéMENTINE AMOUROUX, CATHERINE RéTORé, FRANZISKUS ABGOTTSPON

A project taken over from Maurice Pialat, Messidor has as its basis a true crime story which was a sensation of 1970s France: a crime spree by two young girls and its terminal conclusion. Keenly interested as ever in drop-outs and exiles, Tanner tracks the flight of fierce female fugitives Clementine Amouroux and Catherine Retore through an Alpine Switzerland which has here taken on a heavy, sinister air, holding their own against masculine menace while on a winding road to nowhere.

Messidor is screening as part of the series Alain Tanner. Click here for more info.
