SIFF Sighting: THE UNKNOWN GIRL (Thriller, Belgium)

The Dardenne brothers are incapable of making a boring film and this one is no exception.

When a woman becomes obsessed with a young girl's death, her preoccupation with the event gets her into trouble.

Their gift for capturing life as it is—getting interrupted while cooking, answering someone too quickly—is unparalleled and it shines here.

Don't let the slow pace discourage you from seeing it. The end is worth the wait.


The Unknown Girl screened at the 43rd Annual Seattle International Film Festival.
