Frederic Mermoud - 2017 - 89m - France - In French with English subtitles

Based on the best-seller by Tatiana de Rosnay (Kristin Scott Thomas hit “Sarah’s Key”, “A Secret Kept”) - Following in the footsteps of Alfred Hitchcock and Claude Chabrol, Moka is a mournful, slow-burning psychological thriller in the vein of celebrated story-teller Patricia Highsmith, starring legendary actresses Nathalie Baye (Catch Me If You Can) and Emmanuelle Devos (Coco Before Chanel).

After being released from a sanatorium, Diane (Devos) is still shattered from the death of her son in a hit and run accident. Diane's search for the driver leads her to the stunning spa town of Évian. After meeting Marlene (Baye), a glamorous beautician, Diane is convinced she has found the culprit...

"The reliably interesting Emmanuelle Devos brings complexity to this sleek, Chabrol-like story of a mother's revenge mission." – Guy Lodge, Variety

"A mother's haunting grief propels her on an obsessive quest for answers and possible revenge in Moka, a mournful, slow-burning psychological thriller adapted from the 2006 novel by Tatiana de Rosnay. Frederic Mermoud's return to feature films...has a strong affinity with the writing of Patricia Highsmith and the films of Claude Chabrol and should appeal to an audience seeking moral complexity in their thrillers..." – Allan Hunter, Screen Daily

"A classy and classical psychological thriller." – Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter
