Voleurs (Les)

year: 1997

colour: yes

certificate: 18

director: André Téchiné

runtime: 123

A young boy, woken by his mother’s scream, discovers that for some reason his father has been killed. Téchiné’s ambitious attempt to deconstruct the crime thriller continues by telling the story through a variety of ‘voices’, including Auteuil as the dead man’s detective, Deneuve as a philosophy professor, and Côte as the tortured young woman involved, at one time or another, with all three. Breathtakingly convincing in this difficult and uncharacteristic role, Deneuve won unanimous praise for her performance from the critics and public alike.
