Trailer for The Unknown Girl, starring Adèle Haenel, Olivier Bonnaud, Jérémie Renier and Louka Minnella. Film was distributed to international markets under the title La Fille Inconnue.
The new film from acclaimed directors the Dardenne brothers is a searing saga of guilt and redemption. One evening after work hours, Jenny (Adèle Haenel), a young doctor, allows the door buzzer at the small clinic where she works to go unanswered. It’s only later that she learns that the person ringing was an unidentified African woman found dead shortly after by the side of a road. Consumed by the thought that she is to blame, Jenny embarks on an obsessive crusade to discover who the anonymous woman was and to see to it that she is not forgotten. Shot through with low-key suspense and the heart-stopping realism that has become the directors’ trademark, The Unknown Girl is both a gripping mystery and a profoundly human moral tale.
