  • François Ozon – Mon Crime AKA The Crime Is Mine (2023) (HD)

    François Ozon2021-2030ComedyCrimeFrance

    Following Peter Von Kant,François Ozon returns with a wild comedy lead by two rising stars of French cinema: Nadia Tereszkiewicz (who won the César for Best Newcomer for Les Amandiers) and Rebecca Marder, supported by an A-list cast of French superstars. Already praised as one of Ozon’s best films, The Crime Is Mine is a mischievous drama and detective comedy set in the 1930s, where two friends, Madeleine and Pauline take advantage of the gullibility and idiocy of all the men they meet. The Crime Is Mine is ‘ultimately about the triumph of sorority,’ according to Ozon, who was inspired by American screwball comedies from the 1930s. The absolutely hilarious film follows Madeleine Verdier, a young, pretty, penniless and untalented actress, who is accused of murdering a famous producer. With the help of her best friend Pauline, a young unemployed lawyer, Madeleine presents herself as a grieving victim who must be celebrated for her act instead. The greatest surprise is the one and only Isabelle Huppert, who appears halfway through the film.Read More »
