red rooms

red rooms

Kim (16), Justine (14) and Camille (13) are dead. Kidnapped, tortured, sexually abused and dismembered, they found their bestial end on the darknet in front of the cameras. Months later, their presumed tormentor is on trial: with an emotionless expression and behind safety glass, Ludovic Chevalier attends the prosecutor's disturbing deployment of the evidences and stares at the traumatized relatives. His lawyer pleads "not guilty". Two young women are captivated by the "Demon of Rosemont"’s trial as well: Clémentine, who is ardently defending Chevalier in front of the camera, has fallen in love with him. Kelly-Anne, a model and hacker, becomes even more consumed by her curiosity about what has probably happened in Chevalier's "Red Rooms."

 

RED ROOMS leaves no one cold, makes you angry, speechless and sticks to you long after the credits have rolled. This sensitive, never lurid psychological thriller is celebrating one festival success after another, and quite rightly so.
