The Unknown Girl

After stopping by Cannes with their latest film, Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne have decided to re-edit The Unknown Girl, which premiered at the festival to mixed reviews, including our own. Following a young doctor (Adèle Haenel) who is propelled to uncover the identity of a patient who died after refusing treatment, it remains to be seen if this new cut, which is seven minutes shorter, improves the film, but today we have our first glimpse thanks to an international trailer.

In our review, we said, “The plot is entirely predicated on the kind of contrived coincidences that any screenwriting 101 professor would urge against, persistently dispelling the film’s realism.” The first trailer for its release in France this October unfortunately doesn’t have subtitles yet, but it effectively sets the tone of the mystery.

Check out the preview and poster below:
