THE DAY WILL COME

Germany / France, 2009 (MIFF 2010, First Encounters)

Director: Susanne Schneider

A dramatic psychological thriller about a secret 30 years in the making.

When a family of four living on a rambling vineyard in Alsace-Lorraine open their doors to a young woman - the victim of a minor car accident - they have little reason to suspect trouble. But Alice brings with her a personal vendetta that is set to explode the family's peaceful existence.

A slow-burning psychological showdown sees decades-old secrets disinterred one by one, in a telling reminder that you can never outrun the past.

“Evokes the complex masterpieces of Margarethe von Trotta's early work… Unflinching in its gaze and direct in its emotional connection.” - Toronto International Film Festival
