Criminal Lovers
Fairytales and real life tales of passion and murder intertwine in Ozon's second feature, a sexy thriller - part Blair Witch, part Hansel and Gretel.

Alice (Natacha Régnier) convinces her boyfriend Luc (Jérémie Renier) to kill their schoolmate Saïd (Salim Kechiouche), under the guise that he raped her.

Luc unwittingly barrels along with the scheme which goes to plan until a woodsman entraps the lovers to become his forest prey.

Screened in the Toronto Film Festival. Imported 35mm print!
