Chaos (Désordres)


Year: 2012
Country: FRANCE
Run Time: 101 minutes


When famous pianist Marie retires young, her nature-loving husband Vincent decides the family should move from Paris to a quiet farm town in the South of France. She reluctantly agrees, uncomfortable with the idea of rural life. He ends up getting a job at the local high school where he meets Thibault, a strange student who offers to help around the farm. Feeling sorry for him, Vincent tries to bond with the troubled youth, inviting him over for dinner. Thibault quickly begins to wear out his welcome, driving a wedge between Vincent and Marie. Unhappy in her marriage, Marie begins to lead a precarious double life. As time goes by, details of Thibault's mysterious background begin to surface, leading to questions about his intentions in friending the family. The lies they uncover will lead them to a harrowing realization. Filled with a heavy dose of twists and turns, CHAOS is a roller coaster ride that will thrill you until the very last second. (In French with subtitles) – E.F.
