Main Cast: Fabrizio Rongione, Natacha Régnier, Baptiste Lalieu

David is a happy young father. He has a wife he loves, two adorable young children, and a tight-knit tribe of friends he and his family always go away on holiday with. However, on returning from their last trip away in the Vosges, David is taken in for questioning by the police as part of a murder investigation. Before long, the investigation reveals that all is not what it seems behind the happy and respectable facade of David’s life. Even if Noël, his best friend, and Marco, his lawyer, stand by him come what may, in his entourage doubt begins to spread and clans begin to form. In exploring the troubling power of judgement-by-intuition and the very nature of doubt, director Samuel Tilman has created a gripping film, ramping up the tension with each passing scene; and at its centre is a brilliantly judged performance from Fabrizio Rongione, who will be in Kilkenny to present.
