THE NIGHT OF THE 12TH Trailer: César Winner for Best Film Will Haunt & Thrill You

Dominik Moll’s police procedural mystery thriller The Night of the 12th beat out the likes of Louis Garrel’s The Innocent and Albert Serra’s Pacifiction to win this year’s César (France’s Academy Awards) for Best Film. It also picked up five other awards including Best Director for Moll, Most Promising Actor for Bastien Bouillon, and Best Supporting Actor for Bouli Lanners. It is now arriving in U.S. theaters to kick off the summer, courtesy of Film Movement. Based on a true crime book by Pauline Guéna, Bouillon and Lanners star as cops in a French town investigating the gruesome murder of a young woman that haunts them more as time passes. A new U.S. trailer has been released that is sure to make crime thriller fans eager.

Here’s an official synopsis:

In nearly every police precinct, detectives are inevitably confronted with a case that goes unsolved. The more heinous the crime, the more it haunts those whose duty it is to solve it. Such is the dilemma for Yohan Vivès—a young, recently promoted police Captain—when he begins investigating the gruesome murder of a young woman named Clara in the town of Grenoble. It’s clear that the attack was pre-meditated, and the violent nature of the crime suggests revenge. Vivés’ team methodically digs through the details of Clara’s life, uncovering her secrets in hopes of weeding out the killer. Certain their suspect is a scorned ex-lover, Vivés is confronted with another, more complicated question: which one? 

See the U.S. trailer and poster below. In select theaters May 19.
