The Night of the 12th

Directed by Dominik Moll
2022

Direct from Cannes, a perfectly crafted, atmospheric police procedural set in southern France, based on true events and reminiscent of Zodiac and Memories of Murder.
Dominik Moll’s latest feature (Harry, He’s Here to Help; Only the Animals) stars Bastien Bouillon (The Mystery of Henri Pick) and Bouli Lanners (Love Songs for Tough Guys, SFF 2021) as two case-hardened detectives trying to solve a grisly homicide. As the months tick by without a result, the duo become increasingly disheartened, haunted by the young woman’s senseless death and her family’s grief. At the same time, the all-male investigation squad make judgements about the murdered woman’s social life, failing to recognise that their behaviour isn’t so very different. And they’re prone to jump to conclusions about suspects as well. Moll based this smart thriller on an actual murder but transplanted the events to a small municipality at the foot of the French Alps, where towering slopes loom ominously over the crime scene.  
This taut and piercing thriller is one of Moll’s stronger works to date, using a genre template to delve into issues of violence, gender and policing in contemporary France.
